How do you go about taking the first step on your entrepreneurial journey? For financier, author, 22x Ironman triathlete, and businessman, Mitch Thrower, the question was more than metaphoric. After fracturing both knees and needing multiple leg surgeries, Mitch fell in love with extreme athletics. His passion for sports and stick-to-it attitude shaped the trajectory of his business ventures in the years to come including the creation of Triathlete Magazine, a go-to resource for like-minded athletes.
Sensing that a bigger opportunity was on the horizon, Mitch sold the Triathlete brand and launched events.com, a powerful software as a service (SaaS) platform with intuitive tools to take the stress out of event planning and boost profit margins. Mitch continued to lean on his triathlon background to guide the growth of his new company, “swimming on sight of buoys”, meaning; he set obtainable milestones and followed a “Due Diligence Checklist” – a trick her recommends for anyone taking on a start-up project.
