Every­thing Shane Neman need­ed to know about busi­ness he learned in the grit­ty, chaot­ic New York City night­club scene. In Nightlife Lessons, Neman takes you behind the vel­vet ropes so you can too. With sharp insight, humor, and grat­i­tude, the three-time start­up founder and ven­ture cap­i­tal­ist shows in this unlike­ly busi­ness book how with tenac­i­ty and ambi­tion, you can trans­form any indus­try. In the pre-social media and cam­era-phone days of the new mil­len­ni­um and fresh off his failed first busi­ness, Neman was start­ing from scratch with no bud­get but a huge idea: bring the hope­less­ly out­dat­ed event pro­mo­tions and hos­pi­tal­i­ty world into the dig­i­tal age. The result is Joon­Bug, which blend­ed his pas­sion for par­ty­ing and exper­tise in tech­nol­o­gy to become a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar step­ping stone to ser­i­al entre­pre­neur­ship and a ground­ed per­son­al life. Nightlife Lessons is packed with per­cep­tive lessons from his come­back, advice on how indus­try insid­ers still need to evolve, and pre­dic­tions on how partiers will expe­ri­ence nightlife in the future. Neman’s busi­ness path is an inspi­ra­tional ride through New York’s hot spots. If you can make it there, you can make it any­where … and take it with you everywhere.
