Michael Chernow has a lauded line of successful restaurants in New York City, one with eight locations and one with six. He is a serial founder, using his creative powers to kick-start awesome businesses and then building teams to carry his vision forward. With his podcast Born or Made launching this fall, he says he believes, much like Shakespeare’s line in Twelfth Night, that people are either born great or have greatness thrust upon them.
We got to sit down with Chernow at the ONE37pm offices to talk shop and pick his brain with our most pressing founder questions. His responses were packed with value. Take a look.
