On Season 5 Episode 9 of Think Like A Founder, SNP Communication’s Co-Founder and CEO, Maureen Taylor, interviews Tony Shu. Tony Shu is the Co-Founder of companies Parker & Breaktime.
Parker works to empower individuals to achieve financial freedom through fractional real estate investing. And Breaktime is a non-profit that breaks the cycle of young adult homelessness through purposeful transitional employment.
Tony is a recent graduate from Harvard University, where he created his own major around housing and urban innovation. He has been recognized by Forbes 30 Under 30, BostInno 25 Under 25, and the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce’s Ten Outstanding Young Leaders for his work.
“I reflected on my own life and saw that for my mom, it was that first job at that Chinese restaurant that helped her earn her first wage in the US and of course afford her first apartment. And not have to sleep in the backseat of a rental car. That first job can have ripple effects on one person’s life as
well as the lives of future generations. For me that was a really fascinating problem to address.”
