Founded in Boston in 2010, MassChallenge has grown to become one of the largest startup accelerators in the world. In roughly seven years, the organization has expanded to five cities, accelerated over 1,200 startups and created over 60,000 jobs.

Scott Bailey, Executive Director of North America for MassChallenge, has helped elevate the non-profit since its early days in 2010. Graduating from the University of Vermont with a degree in entrepreneurship, he knows full well the opportunities you can create for yourself with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Thanks to Fast Forward — who just launched their career leadership video series, “A Day In the Life” — you can hear directly from Bailey what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. But Bailey’s words also speak to the overall population of near-future graduates, as he explains the importance of “treating any career like a startup.”

Hear what Bailey has to say, below, and stay tuned for future “A Day In the Life” features coming from Fast Forward.
