Center for Entrepreneurship Brings Ephren Taylor to Campus

Ephren W. Taylor II, founder of Amoro Corporation, spoke Tuesday in the Maddox Grand Atrium as part of the Center for Entrepreneurship’s 2007 Moench Entrepreneurship Lecture Series.

At 24, Taylor is already recognized as one of America’s top young entrepreneurs and is the youngest African-American CEO of any publicly traded company. According to press materials, Taylor, who was described as “walking black history” by popular radio show host Tom Joyner, started his first business venture at age 12, when he began making videogames. By age 17, he built a multi-million dollar technology company: GoFerretGo.com.

Now at City Capital Corporation, Taylor oversees over $150 million in assets, serving a diverse client list ranging from Wall Street investors, top executives, professional athletes and even entertainment icons. He has an extensive background in startup firms and has helped start and fund seven companies, raising millions in investment capital.
