“An Entrepreneur's Journey: Startup - Accelerator - Acquisition... Repeat?” at SNEEF Dec. 14

For anyone that aspires to start and run a company with the possibility of a successful exit, the Southern New England Entrepreneurs Forum (SNEEF) will feature a local success story on Thursday, December 14, 5:30-8:00 p.m., Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE), 151 Martine Street, Fall River.

Founder of Classics & Exotics, a peer-to-peer online marketplace for classic cars, Peter Zawadzki returns to the SNEEF stage to discuss the "rest of the story".  Zawadzki was featured as a SNEEF case study in October of 2015.  At that time, he had recently completed the TechStars Mobility Accelerator in Detroit. 

Zawadzki recently sold Classics & Exotics to Hagerty, an insurer for classic cars, and now holds the title of Director of DriveShare at Hagerty.  Classics & Exotics, now rebranded as DriveShare, is considered the Airbnb of vintage and exotic cars.

Admission is $20, SNEEF Alliance members $15, students and UMass Dartmouth students free.  Registration at www.sneef.org.  Contact SNEEF at info@SNEEF.org.
