Dave Morgan, serial entrepreneur and CEO and Founder of Simulmedia, shared a story at our September dinner about the early days of Real Media, when he was gifted a corner of former NBC exec Bob Blackmore’s office to start the company. Later, Dave remarked, he realized that the true Legends of the media industry understood the power of innovative ideas and startups and were willing to give young entrepreneurs a chance at success. The Legends & Leaders fall dinner was held at Michael’s restaurant in NYC and included industry legends Kay Koplovitz, Mike Drexler, Alec Gerster and Steve Hasker. Watch the video for the full story.
