Gregory Gopman: Entrepreneurship

 

Upon graduation, Gregory founded Weekend Gator in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area. The inspiration for the company came when Gregory realized there was no simple form of transportation to allow him to visit his girlfriend, who was still enrolled in school. It turned out Gregory was not alone in his desire for more efficient transportation and Weekend Gator proved to be wildly successful amongst college students. Here is the link to one of the company’s commercials. Weekend Gator was later sold to Fabulous Coach Lines, which was recently sold again to A Candies Coach Works in Florida.

After selling Weekend Gator, Gregory Gopman founded PhoneNurses.com in Miami, Florida. Phone Nurses focused on purchasing old cellular telephones, refurbishing them, and shipping them overseas for new users. Gregory developed the concept for the company while traveling and responded to Craigslist ads from people needing cheap cell phone repair. From those experiences, Gregory developed the overwhelming need into a lucrative business.

After almost two years at PhoneNurses.com, Gregory’s desire for another venture led him to San Francisco, California. It was here he founded AngelHack and held the position of Chief Executive Officer. AngelHack is the largest hackathon organizer in the world where top teams were awarded with a place an accelerator program as well as cash prizes. Gregory saw the need for a change within the hackathon community as hackathons were operated by corporations that only needed to test their products. Gregory as well as hackers and develops needed a more engaging system to help find their way and be discovered. AngelHack proved to be extremely successful and expanded from San Francisco to host events in Boston, New York City, and Seattle. Word soon spread and companies like Hearst Corporation and Hewlett Packard sponsored AngelHack for hackathons. AngelHack was soon hosting events in about 50 cities across the nation and changing the way hackathons were operated from then on.

After about two and a half years, Gregory set his mind to developing another company, Stealth. Gregory plans to develop a mobile app that will unite the world and make it a better place.
