Virtual Nittany Networking Breakfast – Making Strategic Encounters Happen

Join us for our next Virtual Nittany Networking Breakfast! Our (virtual) host will be JT Marino as he speaks to his fascinating journey of co-founding and building Tuft & Needle, the direct-to-consumer mattress and bedding brand. It’s a story that touches on entrepreneurship, perseverance, and venture capital. It's also one that started when he overpaid for a substandard mattress a decade ago.   

JT and co-founder Daehee Park met via the entrepreneur program at Penn State and they launched Tuft & Needle in 2012. It started a revolution by turning the focus to the customer with always-honest pricing, an insistence on high-quality products, and excellent customer service. More information on the company and its product line can be found here:  https://www.tuftandneedle.com/

We will reserve some time for discussion, idea sharing, and general networking. Spacing will be limited.
