The Unipreneurs Podcast
Alexander Jacobsen - Waves CEO and Founder
In this episode, Alexander Jacobsen from Waves tells us about his student journey that has lead to him becoming an entrepreneur. Starting as a first year industrial engineering and management student, Alex got involved early with entrepreneurship initiatives at his university. He has had many ideas along the way, two of which he has developed into ventures. His first venture taught him a lot about keeping the relationships in your life nurtured even as you become consumed by your work. His second venture is teaching him even more lessons about building a team, creating a prototype, and managing his role as CEO.
