SnapGoods Founder Ron J. Williams Has Problems
Serial entrepreneur Ron J. Williams gets a thrill out of finding problems to solve with technology–and confounding expectations. A Brooklyn native and graduate of specialized public school Stuyvesant High, Williams went on to earn degrees in East Asian Studies and Economics from Harvard. Then he walked away from a budding career in finance and started a tutoring business, did event marketing, and for three years worked on business-development projects at the publisher Scholastic. All of which helped him realize that, ultimately, his place was “in the wild,” pursuing ideas and crafting solutions that didn’t necessarily fit into other people’s boxes.
