RocGrowth Candids is a bi-monthly event featuring local entrepreneurs who share their personal stories and lessons learned building successful businesses.
We are pleased to feature Ken Wasnock, serial entrepreneur and CEO of Garden Trends. In his 20s, he started Concentrix, a marketing and fulfillment company that employs hundreds in the Rochester area. He subsequently started five more high growth, venture backed companies in the marketing and publishing fields. At Garden Trends, he is modernizing a 100+ year old company that owns Harris Seeds and other niche agricultural operations. We will hear firsthand from an irrepressible entrepreneur and how he approaches innovation and building culture.
We start and finish with informal socializing over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. In between, we conduct an open interview, followed by Q&A, with our featured guests.
