Founders’ Lunch: How the Military Prepared Me For A Startup

When: 11:30a.m. - 1:00p.m.
Where: Rev1 Ventures 1275 Kinnear Rd. Columbus, Ohio 43212


Rev1’s Founders’ Lunch series features first-hand insights into the triumphs, trials, and tribulations of Rev1 company founding teams. Each luncheon will feature a founding story and tips on a topic, plus delicious food from a local eatery and optional guided tours of the Rev1 Labs facility.

Becoming an entrepreneur is challenging, testing perseverance and character, often without a moment of rest. During this month’s lunch, we explore how Anthony Reynolds experience as a member of the United States Air Force and of the Intelligence Community has influenced his work as an entrepreneur.

Anthony is the Co-Founder and CMO of Refill, a technology start-up offering premier on-demand alcohol delivery service. In addition to direct-to-consumer deliveries, Refill is actively targeting in-seat delivery opportunities in professional and collegiate stadiums and recently signed a partnership with the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets.

Join us as Anthony shares his journey of moving from the Military to entrepreneurship, including the challenges faced and transitions and iterations that he has made along the way.
