Jeremy Delk, author of Without a Plan is in the shop this week to talk about his journey into the markets. From his humble beginnings in a small Kentucky town to making (and losing) $2 Million in the stock markets during the dot com bubble while in college, Jeremy has had some incredible experiences... and this was all before becoming the youngest broker at Fidelity! Join us for a fascinating discussion on mindset and the power of positive attitude, along with some incredible stories about successful (and missed) opportunities during his 20+ years in the venture capitalist business.
About Jeremy:Born and raised in a small town and from a blue-collar household, his parents worked for the post office. However, Jeremy always held much bigger dreams. He longed to experience the world outside his small hometown of Bardstown, Kentucky.
He jumped into entrepreneurial ventures with the naivety of a child and the tenacity of a tycoon. He started the day trading at the age of sixteen, learning and failing with each trade. It is this process of adapting through failures that is paramount to his success in business.
His knowledge and skill as a day trader would help him land a job as one of the youngest brokers at Fidelity trading institutional equities in Boston and later in New York. He was earning great money, but it didn’t fulfill the entrepreneurial spark within him, so he decided to go out on his own.
Delk Enterprises has grown from making $6,000 in its first year in business to a diversified VC fund that has built and exited investments in both private and public transactions. Today, more than 20 years later, Delk Enterprises has holdings in biotech & healthcare, consumer brands, technology, building materials, and real estate development.
Jeremy now focuses on investing in and advising entrepreneurs through speaking. His upcoming book shares his reality of the Good, Bad, and UGLY of entrepreneurship. It serves as a not-so-subtle reminder of fundamental principles he’s learned through his journey: while great times don’t last forever, neither do the truly bad ones.
