meetupStartupGrind Dallas Hosts Doug Levy (CEO of TapGoods)

July 6th 5:30 - 8:30PM The DEC

Nicknamed “The Book Guy” during his collegiate years, Doug Levy once took on the University of Pennsylvania, where he was enrolled, after they attempted to shut down his multi-million dollar bookselling business. Campus Text, which operated out of an 18-wheeler parked outside of the university’s bookstore, was a cheaper, friendlier option for his fellow students, and an endeavor that would forever solidify Doug’s commitment to elevating humanity through innovative entrepreneurship.
