WATERTOWN — Armenia General Benevolent Union (AGBU) summer interns in the Boston area had a chance not only to work in various offices and learn on the job, but to hear from other professionals about their own stories in the world of business.
One of those was the co-founder of GG Taxi, an app-based car service, similar to Uber and Lyft, which started in Armenia and now operates in Russia, Georgia and California.
Khachatur Grigorian gave advice about business and leadership, while speaking with pride about the evolution and future of GG. His June 24 presentation was part of a series of workshops for summer interns and other young members of the Armenian community.
“When you want to start something, everything begins from [your] dream. Following the dream is belief. After that,” Grigorian said, “comes hard work.” He added, “As a leader, you should have all of these things in your heart and mind.”
