Summit: how to pull off insane ideas like buying a ski resort – with Co-Founder Elliott Bisnow
How do you buy a ski mountain? How much does it cost? And how do you turn it into the biggest ski resort in North America – Powder Mountain?
That’s the kind of thing we wanted to know when we sat down with Elliott Bisnow, who shot to startup fame as Co-Founder of Summit, a now legendary events series which attracted speakers like Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson and Jessica Alba.
He’s now the proud Co-Founder of Powder Mountain which is insanely cool. And not bad for a college dropout, although, to be fair, that’s now a pretty common trend on this podcast: drop out of university to start something and make it big.
We have a lot of dreamers on this show but Elliott’s dreams are legitimately crazy. Find out how he turns them into a reality and:
