Geng At University of Miami



Geng Wang, co-founder of Rent Jungle talked to students in Professor Sheryl Alonso's class, Advanced Organizational Behavior (senior elective) at the University of Miami last week. He spoke about Rent Jungle and our sister company, Community Elf.
 

He talked about his background and what he's been doing since graduating from Michigan State University in  2008. He also talked about the background of Rent Jungle and Community Elf and how the two companies came about.  Students asked a lot of questions like "How did you get funding for the idea?" or "What made you think Rent Jungle would be a good idea to start?" 


 

Students also were great in giving feedback on both businesses.  Interesting stats on the students: 90% of the classes used Twitter, 75% have Liked a company on Facebook,  40% have used QR codes  One of the students also used Rent Jungle last year to look for an apartment as well. Thanks for the feedback,
Advanced Organizational Behavior class!
