Outside of interning for Preemadonna and helping with Nailbot, I've been an active entrepreneur exploring new business ideas. On July 19th 2018, I did my first business pitch. My business is called SquareOne and we focus of providing teens with career development programs through the use of our app. We created a platform that connects programs looking for high school students to students. This Pitch competition was held at 1871 and was organized through a group called Future Founders. This was a great experience because 2 weeks leading up the pitch I was given guidance by Future Founders on how to properly develop my business plan.
Throughout the two weeks no one really minded my nails. People even gave me comment on how nice and long my nails were. I remember a couple of days into the program I engaged in a very lively conversation on how to keep I keep my nails nice and long. So, my nails didn't affect me negatively at all.
In today’s American society, it is fair to say when males paint their nails it is considered stange. However, thousands of years ago painting nails was normal for men. Here where some examples.
In 3200 BC, people in Babylonia wore different nail polish colors to signify classes. The darker the color the higher class you are and alternatively the lighter colors were for lower classes. Even the soldiers would put on black and green nail polish. They actually believed having those colors on would intimidate and instill fear into their enemies.
