Entrepreneurship at Booth: Finding Your Beach

There is no better time than now to be an entrepreneur at Booth.

Inspired by a trip with 350 of our closest Boothie friends, Moises Numa and Andreina Chacin, members of the Class of 2019, decided to focus their entrepreneurial spirit on an industry all Boothies become very familiar with… travel.
