    SBJ Unpacks: Zach Maurides

    Zach Maurides infamously started his business called Teamworks in a Duke University classroom when he was a student. Now, the Chicago native’s organizational and communications platform is used by more than 1,000 college teams and the recent acquisitions of INFLCR and Notemeal have broadened the company into new areas of growth. In this edition of the SBJ Unpacks podcast, Michael Smith talks to Maurides about what has driven him as an entrepreneur and founder, the future of name, image and likeness and what convinced him to commit to Duke as a football recruit on his first college visit.

And she touched on the report’s shortcomings, including areas where she and her co-authors intend to make improvements in what they’re planning to be an annual effort.
