Chris Jacobs ’10

CEO, Honest Discounts

"Entrepreneurship is the ultimate source of creativity in business."

What the World Needs from Entrepreneurs Today

Would-be entrepreneurs need to shut up. Way too many kids are talking, Tweeting, and boasting about their ideas but not getting stuff done.

My Proudest Moments

  • Being named among America’s best young entrepreneurs by BusinessWeek in 2009.
  • Being praised for ten minutes by Babson President Len Schlesinger at graduation (in front of my family). Actually, I was a lousy student ... except in entrepreneurship.

How I Define Entrepreneurship

It’s about building a life that I want to live. Entrepreneurship is the ultimate source of creativity in business. I knew that when I was nine.
