My name is Anthony Martin and I caught the entrepreneur bug while I was in college at UC Santa Barbara and never looked back. There's something about it.. Seeing a market opportunity, and forming a plan to execute your vision based solely on the passion for the idea is what draws me to entreprenuerialism. AJ and I are working day in and day out on capturing a $600 million market, one college at a time. Our national iPhone Repair Company is based on over 20 Universities in the United States, and with our business model, we see great potential to exponenitally expand our existing market of 20+ schools. We are both fortunate enough to be employed full-time through our company, and we love every waking moment of it. I'm very excited to have the opportunity to speak at Vator because of my friends that have spoken very highly about their past experiences bringing the Voice of the entreprenuers into one venue!
