Cultivating the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs in the Family Business: An Unconventional Path to Success
Jane and Scott Wolfe Sr. owners of the iconic Melba's and Scott Wolfe Jr. founder of Levelset
Join us as Jane and Scott Wolfe Sr. share their journey as family business owners of Wolfe Construction and the iconic Melba's Po-boy restaurant, and the former owners of Wagner's Meat Market. The Wolfe family's non-conforming approach to business provides unique lessons on risks, growth, and pivoting during challenging circumstances. Also joining this dynamic conversation is Scott Wolfe Jr., founder of Levelset. Scott will give his insights on growing up in the family business and how it influenced his path as an entrepreneur, along with his decision to sell Levelset for a half-billion dollars. Levelset developed a software application for contractors to track and automate waivers, pay apps and notices.
The conversations will be moderated by Dr. Suri Duitch, Dean, School of Professional Advancement and Rob Lalka, Executive Director, Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Albert Lepage Professor in Business.
