Swish Goswami The Fresh Face Mogul

Swish started his first business when he was 7 years-old and since has been a serial entrepreneur. After successfully building Technotronics Inc, a wearables startup, Swish is now the co-founder of Dunk Media, a sports media conglomerate heavily focused on social by establishing and growing a media network of over 10M followers hyper-focused on basketball. 
Swish has notably won Plan Canada’s Top 20 under 20, the United Nation’s Outstanding Youth Leadership award and Startup Canada’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year. Swish has been recognized as “one of the world’s most accomplished teenagers” by Future Sharks, “one of ten Gen Z experts to follow” by Forbes and the “Face and Future of Canadian Entrepreneurship” by UPS Canada.Manu is currently the CEO and Founder of a game changing venture; Trufan.
Trufan is a new-age media company looking to bridge the gaps between influencers, brands and fans. The mobile app and web platform helps influencers, agencies and brands identify and reward their top fans.Swish has previously acted as a consultant for Fortune 500 companies like Google, Western Union, and American Express. He also sits on various boards including at Dunk (media network of 10M followers hyper-focused on basketball) and the League of Innovators (Canadian charity started by Ryan Holmes, CEO of Hootsuite).
Swish has been published in over one hundred national and international publications and has notably been inducted into Plan Canada’s Top 20 under 20, recognized as Startup Canada’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year and won the United Nation’s Outstanding Youth Leadership award.

As a 20 year old entrepreneur, Swish has certainly taken his fair share of risks. However, every endeavor he has embarked on has been well thought-out and planned. If one has a serious business model that is impeded by one’s attending university, then perhaps taking a gap year - like Swish did - makes sense. To haphazardly pursue a lead without any plan is anathema to entrepreneurial success. 

“Risk is something you don’t just do in professional but also in personal life”, Goswami tells me. Put yourself out there on social media platforms. Secure speaking engagements - and if they don’t exist, create your own. Most of all, get out of your comfort zone!
