Meet with a Mentor: Josh Sullivan

Thursday, March 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm • Organized By efactory
Online Event


The efactory and Missouri Small Business Development Center at MSU Mentorship Program gives startup founders and small business owners access to experienced owners and business leaders. These experts understand the risks and rewards of starting a business. Mentors provide honest and practical feedback based on personal experience, not just business theory.

Mentorship meetings are free and open to everyone.


Josh’s passions in life are the ones teachers said were a waste of time, his relatives didn’t understand, and the pastor, bless his heart, said would lead him to ruination.

He believes in working hard and playing harder. Rock n’ roll. That the only path to a nice deep sleep is a hard day’s work and sometimes a hard day’s night. Punching above his weight class. Taking a blue-collar approach to the very cushy job he has of being lucky enough to create cool experiences for even cooler people. He believes in setting goals, having a good plan, and basking in the glow of accomplishment.

Josh has founded and continues to grow companies like Fried Design Company, Supper, Sweet Boy’s Neighborhood Bar, and more.

He is also a ceremonial member of both G-Unit and The Wu-Tang Clan.
