When Downers Grove North called to ask if Charlie Williams, one of Digiwrap’s founders and an alum of the school, would come speak to students in the Entrepreneurship Course last May, he was more than happy to oblige—it was sure to be a far less intense experience than when he and co-founder Brad Boskovic swam with ABC’s sharks on a December episode of Shark Tank last year. Charlie was happy to return to his alma mater and share about the whirlwind experience.
When Williams attended school at North, he had no idea business would be in his future. Students found his speech totally inspiring and were excited to receive business advice from Williams and gain insight into his journey of appearing on Shark Tank.
“This was an incredible opportunity for North students to learn from a successful young entrepreneur. While students loved hearing about Charlie’s experience on Shark Tank, this was an opportunity for students to make a connection with an entrepreneur who was walking the same hallways only a few years earlier,” said Entrepreneurship teacher, Drew Himes.
