Inside the Mind of an Entrepreneurial Agent of Change with Jenny Poon The Elephant in the Room

    • Technology

The age-old adage, "The world is owned by those who show up." could not be more accurate to describe the guest on today's show. You'll hear the story of a child of immigrants who maximized her opportunity by creating opportunities for others.
 
Jenny Poon is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of two resources that have changed the face of entrepreneurism: HUUB a city-wide virtual platform for entrepreneurs for on-demand training and access to experts available for free through the support of participating city's funding and Co-Hoots a purpose-driven coworking and entrepreneur center. Within a few years of launching Co-Hoots in 2009, Jenny was recognized globally for her impact. To this day, Co+Hoots is recognized among the top 10 coworking spaces in the world.
 
As the child of immigrants, Jenny saw firsthand the struggle her parents went through as small business owners. She was ultimately stunned by how successful her parents were in spite of these obstacles and could only imagine a different story, had they had the support they needed. It was through that experience combined with her talent to solve complicated problems that led Jenny to be one of the most important business leaders of our time, not just in Phoenix but in the world.
