As a third-generation entrepreneur, Mr. Zaharios’ passion for innovation started at a young age while spending afternoons learning about business from his dad and grandfather at their automotive repair shop in Daytona Beach.  While earning a bachelor’s degree and MBA, he helped lay the groundwork for the inception of the Florida Virtual Entrepreneur Center. He oversees this organization, which has grown into an online network and educational resource for entrepreneurs across Florida’s 67 counties. He is passionate about giving back to the community through volunteering, and facilitating events such as 1 Million Cups, Kickstart Weekend and Startup Grind.
