This week, @JeremyShinewald sits down with VFA Alum @Steven_Mazur, Co-Founder and CEO of @ashandanvil. Steven dabbled in entrepreneurship at the age of fourteen selling paintball accessories. After completing his two year VFA Fellowship, Steven was eager to found his own company. Searching for company ideas, Steven asked his friends and family what he griped about the most. Their answer - shopping! Many men struggle with finding clothing that fits well. As a 5’6” man himself, Mazur knows the struggle of the "short guy". Steven and his fellow Fellow alum created Ash & Anvil, a clothing company for men 5’8” and shorter. As a 2013 Fellow, Mazur credits two VFA opportunities (VFA’s Innovation Fund and the Accelerator) with helping him create his company. Listen to this self-proclaimed “math and science nerd” speak about his VFA experience and how he and his co-founder, Eric, have gotten to where they are today.
