EP21 - Entrepreneurs Should Take the Offer, Then do it All Over Again
Ghassan Halazon’s entrepreneurial journey started at the age of 25. Over the past decade, companies founded or acquired by Ghassan and his partners have saved Canadians close to $1 billion, hired 350 employees, and raised capital from over 150 global investors.
Earlier in his career, Ghassan had the opportunity to sell one of his first ventures to a large Telecommunications firm, but he chose not to. As we chat in this episode, Ghassan offers this to my listeners; "I think we should have back then, because I think every founder, when you're young and you start your first venture, if you happen to be sexy, even if it's for 30 minutes and someone gives you an outrageous offer for what you were, you should take it."
Ghassan Halazon is a serial e-commerce entrepreneur with a decade of scaling some of the
