Here at BOXFOX, we're pretty representative of the Southern California college scene. Chelsea and Jenni hail from UCLA, Sabena from USC (hold your rivalry comments, that is so passé) and we love to talk about it. Which is why when UCLA hosted Geek Week on The Hill this week and asked us to come speak about BOXFOX, we were thrilled!!
After listening to fellow UCLA entrepreneurs Jon Gottfried, founder of Major League Hacking and Coolhaus's Natasha Case, we were up! While its only been 2.5 years for us, a LOT has happened. It is always so humbling to think back to the beginning of BOXFOX and share our motivation, how we got started, and how BOXFOX became what it is today. It was also a nice reminder to the students (and ourselves) that when we were 19, we had no idea this is where we would be. Ideas can sneak up on you, life can happen, and you may find yourself starting something of your own.
