Entrepreneurship and Skis (and Snow)

Last week, following the city’s first (but not last) snowstorm of the year, a mix of first- and second-year MBA students made the trip out to East Boston to visit Parlor. One of New England’s only custom ski manufacturers, Parlor was founded by three former college classmates and ski team members (one of whom is a BU graduate). For the past six years they have been turning out custom designs, unique to each skier’s preferences and terrain. Students had the chance to enjoy a few beers in the compact setup while learning about the challenges of starting a business from scratch, refining the manufacturing and design process, finding the proper marketing for their skis, and earning a profit and expanding their business.
