Serhat Pala has lived the American dream. Coming to the United States as an immigrant from Turkey, he has started numerous businesses. He practically willed his first business into existence with the help of a credit card, a lot of business savvy and his supportive and equally entrepreneurial wife.

Since launching that first business, he has started many others. Some of those, like Confirm BioSciences and TestCountry, are still running today. Others have sold for multi-million dollar profits. A few have even folded and now those experiences serve as learning opportunities that he uses to teach others. Above all else, Serhat loves to pass his knowledge and experience onto others so he can help them reach their entrepreneurial dreams.

Serhat lives in San Diego with his beautiful business and life partner, Zeynep Ilgaz, and his two boys Kenan and Arden.
