Robert Berk ’16, author of Why Wait?: How I Jump-Started My Entrepreneurial Journey Before Graduating Into a Covid-19 World – And How You Can, Too! (Independently Published 2020), is on an accelerated path to success. As a student at Hamilton College, he accepted a position as executive assistant to New York Times Best Selling Author Dave Kerpen ’94, founder of the social media marketing agency Likeable Media. In his years working with Kerpen, Berk was able to set the foundation for his future journey as an entrepreneur.
While a sophomore at Hamilton, Berk launched his first venture, Solvit, a social media and digital branding agency that supports small business owners. Berk’s next achievement came when he and Kerpen co-founded Apprentice, a platform that connects entrepreneurs that are looking for a driven Executive Assistant (future COO, do-it-all, and go-to person) that is committed to professional growth to smart and motivated college students that are looking for real-world experience and mentorship. Now, as a 2020 college graduate who has launched two successful startups, Berk shares his story in this inspiring book. Fifty percent of the profits from Why Wait? will be donated to Feeding America.
