There are hundreds of THOUSANDS of places you can go that encourage and nurture employees. But it’s hard to find a place that fully embraces those “crazy” enough to become Entrepreneurs.
Lurn’s mission is to change that. That's why we’ve built our first ever, Lurn Center, here in Rockville, MD.
Anik's vision started years ago when he was just a kid. He was the one setting up a lemonade stand, and hiring younger kids to sell lemonade for him.
But it all came to a head when Anik started college.
He grew up in a family of engineers, lawyers and doctors.
Anik's dad moved to the United States from India, with just $16 in his pocket. He became a successful engineer, and went on to carve out an amazing life for their family.
Anik was destined to follow a very similar path. He enrolled in the University of Maryland School of Medicine. It started off well, but it didn’t go too far. Anik woke up one morning and realized “Whoa, this is not gonna work.”
So he decided to pivot and go to business school, thinking this was where he belonged. Come to find that business school also wasn’t his true passion.
Anik's heart and soul belonged to Entrepreneurship.
He made up his mind to pursue that path, but his entrepreneurial journey hasn’t been an overnight-success. Far from it.
Actually, it was a constant struggle in the beginning.
Through it all, besides some online forums and communities, Anik really didn’t have a place he could go to where he felt at home as an Entrepreneur. A place that Entrepreneurs like himself could call home, where there are other like minded people, who we could relate to one another and even bounce ideas off of each other. A place where there is access to all the tools and resources Entrepreneurs needed to succeed.
It was very frustrating and limiting not having a community, a home when Anik was first starting out. So he decided back then that once he became more successful, he would do his best to make sure this doesn’t happen to other Entrepreneurs.
Anik made it a mission to change that, and as soon as the opportunity presented itself - he did.
Anik wanted to build a facility that Entrepreneurs can come to and feel at home. A facility that is a “one-stop-shop” for Entrepreneurs. A facility that has everything to thrive as an Entrepreneur.
