Visit Hiram College’s East Hall Forum every Wednesday evening for an hour or two of stimulating conversation with entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial thinkers!  If you have ever wondered how businesses or organizations get started, here’s the chance to find out.

Each Wednesday an entrepreneur will tell their story.  Some of these entrepreneurs may be well seasoned; some may be just starting out.  Hear how they did it, what they did right, what they might do differently and what they might do next!

This week:

It’s All About the Fun! with Steve Presser, Founder and Owner, BIG Fun

Voted one of the 20 Coolest Stores in America by Playboy, Big Fun draws customers from all over the world. Presser calls himself “The Big Kahuna” and his business card proclaims him to be “The Big Cheese.”  No matter title, Presser has been able to turn his obsession with nostalgia and collecting into a successful business that specializes in new and vintage toys and novelty items. Big Fun, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in April 2016, has hit a few bumps in the road, but is still delivering the fun.  Come hear how Steve went from stockbroker to toy broker!
