Bryan Hassin

Entrepreneur-in-Residence, 1789 Venture Lab

Bryan Hassin is an entrepreneur-in-residence at 1789 Venture Lab. He has an ambitious, twofold mission. First, he wants to change the way the world thinks about energy through his local startup Smart Office Energy Solutions, which helps offices reduce their energy consumption through data monitoring software and hardware as well as advanced behavioral science. This is a pretty lofty goal by itself, but Hassin also has another mission: teach local technology startups how to navigate the treacherous waters of entrepreneurship.

Having launched his fourth startup a few years ago, he is akin to a kind of entrepreneurial Energizer bunny — he is either in the classroom, giving a TED talk, helping businesses lower their carbon dioxide footprint or offering business mentorship support to startups.
