Mike DeLazzer, Redbox founder speaking at Iowa State





A deal was about to die and Mike asked for 24 hours to turn his never functioning RedBox machine into a working product. One BOLD move and now a billion dollar company.

"Success lies just beyond failure. If you fail and give up, you have truly failed, but if you failed and continue to persevere you will succeed."

- Mike DeLazzer

Mike DeLazzer will be speaking at Iowa State starting at 5:30 at Gerdin 1148. The talk is open to students, faculty and the public.
