Entrepreneurial DNA | AWS Activate Business Series

We're bringing in former New York City Attorney Jay Rooke to shake up how we pursue entrepreneurship.

Jay will walk us through the main takeaways of Entrepreneurial DNA, which explores the concept that we all have different ways we're hard-wired in a business setting.  By better understanding our (and others') natural tendencies and dispositions, attendees will walk away from the evening with a better understanding of their areas of giftedness as well as their blind spots.  Jay will share actionable insights that innovative entrepreneurs can apply to their business or within their organization.  His goal is to provide you with the tools to move from status quo to optimal performance.


Attendees are encouraged to take this brief complimentary entrepreneurial assessment, based on the BOSI methodology, which is laid out in the book Entrepreneurial DNA and announced at a prior TEDx event.  Entrepreneur Magazine named Entrepreneurial DNA as one of the top 14 books to read, and Seth Godin wrote "Not all entrepreneurs are the same.  Neither are all businesses...this engaging [methodology]...helps you sort it all out and find the path that's right for you."  After spending a decade in corporate and launching a restaurant, Jay now serves as an Executive Coach in Sonoma, where he helps accelerate the growth of early stage entrepreneurs.

His talk will be followed by music, appetizers, and drinks to celebrate our new AWS Loft location.
