THE GREAT: IVAN HALL
Meet Ivan W. Hall.
Ivan is the creator and co-founder of Opioid Watch; an organization dedicated to identifying opioid misuse disorder. But Ivan has not always been an established entrepreneur - he recently took a bold step outside of his every day profession, outside of his comfort zone, outside of his normal routine to pursue something he has been passionate about: A mission to help others while serving the industry that supports him.
"In all honesty, I lacked the belief that I could be the one to make it work. It wasn't until I participated and won Startup Weekend Fort Worth with the 4 additional Co-Founders in March of 2019 that I fully believed in the idea and myself."
One of Ivan's biggest motivators is following people that inspire him.
We asked Ivan what leadership meant to him:
"Leadership, to me, is being fearless. It's an unwavering desire to build up everyone around you. The conviction to both ask questions and solve problems. But most importantly, leadership is having the courage to stand for something and inspire others to stand with you. I can say now that I do consider myself a leader, and I strive every day to be a better leader than I was the day before."
Ivan, we cannot wait to see what you do in this space!
