2.Arjun - Founder & CEO atHelloWoofy.com
Arjun is a New York City based entrepreneur originally from West Windsor, New Jersey (aka Princeton Junction). Since high school, Arjun has been networking with some of the most well known entrepreneurs & even worked on a few projects & startups of his own.Upon graduation, Arjun pursued his career opportunities & came to New York City where he enrolled at the New York Institute of Technology in 2011 with scholarships & grants. Following a few weeks into college, Arjun launched his second startup, fuelbrite.com, a social media agency focused on small businesses & startups, & a student-focused organization, TheBizDen.After interning at a PR & ad agency in the summer of 2012, Arjun quickly saw the need for yet another startup within the tech space & raised a seed investment round to build it out. That startup became Wrkbench.io which was a virtual collaboration space designed for creative & visual people (we liked to say we make visual conversations).After spending a few years & learning the ins & outs of running a venture backed startup, Rai set out to modernize another industry related to his former passion of social media. The startup would be known as HelloWoofy.com which is a social media management platform driven by artificial intelligence to help small to medium sized businesses with digital marketing.
