Communication, Emotions, and Self-Reflection: Bob Casey

  • Good Life Center, Silliman College (Byers Hall, 4th Floor) 505 College St. New Haven, CT (map)

Join us for a fireside chat on Communication, Emotions, and Self-Reflection with Bob Casey (Founder and CEO, YouRenew).

Bob Casey (Yale '11, Morse College) started his first business, YouRenew, with a classmate during his sophomore year. YouRenew began as a platform for consumers and corporate clients to trade in used electronic devices (iPhones, tablets, laptops) and evolved over time into a trade-in platform for wireless retailers to use at point of sale. YouRenew was acquired in 2012 by Clover Technologies, where Bob spent three years as a VP, continuing to grow YouRenew's product offering. Bob then received his MBA from Harvard, and became CEO of Mindflash, a learning management software company. Mindflash was recently acquired by a San Francisco based private equity firm, and Bob is now a partner at the Investment Group of Santa Barbara, where he focuses on investing in enterprise software companies.

This fireside chat is part of How to Build Your Startup with a Strong Founding Team, a new program from CITY. The series’ fireside chats are open to the public; they will be followed by cohort-based growth workshops for students working on startups, social ventures, and innovative projects.
