Start-up Stories – Friday 15 March – 7:30 – 8:25am in the Innovation Precinct

We’ve heard stories of big businesses that started humbly in a garage including Nike, Hewlett Packard and Dell. Come along to St Paul’s School on Friday 15 March and hear another great story. Paul Gehan is the owner of My Tesla Accessories, a business that was kicked off following a conversation with a friend.  One of the drivers for the business was a desire to show his son Oscar, who’s in year 9 at St Paul’s School, how business works and the challenges it presents.  At this event, he’ll explain how it all started, what he learnt as the business grew and what advice he would give to other entrepreneurs.
