When Winston Walker’s former job dried up, he got inventive. A former ticket scalper, Walker noted that Barclays Center in Brooklyn wouldn’t take mobile tickets. It meant those showing up for a Brooklyn Nets game or a hot concert had to wander the streets of the borough, looking for a place to print the tickets.
Now, Walker shows up, printer in hand, and for $5 per print, he solves that problem. Mobile may be disrupting the world. But when it comes to opportunity, all it takes is solving a problem.
