Would you leave your successful Investment Banking career to launch a startup in an industry you have no experience? What if your startup helped the early careers of comedian Chris Rock, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx, the tv/radio host of everything Steve Harvey, the late Bernie Mac, the great Dave Chappelle, and dozens more… Then a documentary was made about you that earned great acclaim. Then you become a producer and your latest movie about Maya Angelou was just selected for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Sounds crazy but taking that risk is what D’87 Raymond Lambert did and he is sharing his behind the scenes entrepreneurial story with our Darden Chicago alumni. Stay tuned as we’re working on event details but you can order Raymond’s book All Jokes Aside or rent the documentary Phunny Business from Amazon… or, you can stay in that safe banking job.
The date has slid a bit – Raymond is launching a new project – but we’re both working on finalizing a time and location after the holidays.
