Jaclyn Baumgartner, CEO and Co-Founder of Boatsetter, a leading online marketplace for boat rentals, presented on Thursday, January 17, as part of the Miami Business School’s Distinguished Leaders Lecture Series

The company makes privately-owned boats accessible in over 300 locations worldwide to renters in a legal, safe, and insured manner.

Baumgartner focused on the vision of the company, how the company first began, and how to know if it’s worth pursuing an entrepreneurial life. 

“My hope is that particularly in the back of this audience there are many of you who aspire to be entrepreneurs,” said Baumgartner. “My hope is to be able to in part and share some of the hard-won lessons that I’ve learned over time, to help save you some mistakes, save you time, and heartache.”

Baumgartner went on to discuss the different factors it takes to build a successful company as an entrepreneur.
