YALI Voices Podcast: Steve Zita Mentors Youth to be Successful Business Leaders

When I look for young people to support or businesses to help grow, the first thing I look at is character, ambition, passion, and integrity. Because as much as we want to invest in your business, we also want to invest in you and make sure that we are working with the right person… Your business idea, as important as it is, it’s second rate. We want to make sure that you are the right guy, and that you will serve as an example to the ones behind you.”
