“My fundamental life mission, however cliche, is to change the world. It’s usually a feel-good, fortune-cookie thing to say but we’ve found ourselves building the foundation for that change at Poly Founders. I feel like many people with the hacker mentality never really fit in… and never had much regard for the status quo. We’ve all stumbled through life and to find each other, to build up this community, its more than just a relief. It’s euphoria really.
[Poly Founders] is much like a startup, it always goes back to the target market. And our market is the hacker/entrepreneur that’s looking for a home. When they finally find us, and when people say to me “Poly Founders has made my year. This is fantastic…” that’s what really makes it worthwhile for me. Building it for the user.”
Ethan is one of the co-founders of Poly Founders, a multi-disciplinary organization for young entrepreneurs based at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona that is riling up the tech and startup industry in California’s Inland Empire.
