We hope you’re ready to support and celebrate these entrepreneurs, so in the meantime we’rekicking off a series of blogs to celebrate past students and see where they are now since they graduated.

First up – Vanessa Vaughn, founder of Asfalis Advisors, a business resilience company specializing in risk, crisis management and business continuity services for public and private entities.


Question: Which class were you a part of?

Answer: 2018


Question: How did you connect with City Startup Labs?

Answer: I connected with Henry Rock and CSL through community.


Question: Why would you recommend the program to other entrepreneurs?

Answer: I recommend CSL for 3 reasons:                

  1. CSL helped me to be more accountable as a leader, and establish a foundation of core values.
  2. CSL challenged me to understand my business and the message we convey and as a direct result we landed a major client before the program wrapped up.
  3. CSL created an environment for me to build relationships with other cohorts and strategic partnerships and mentors with highly successful business owners.
