Ted Leonins

At the age of 16, when Ted Leonsis arrived as an undergraduate at Georgetown, he saw his first computer. At the age of 24, he sold his first company and started another company, Redgate Communications, the first acquisition of AOL. Then, before age 30, Leonsis had a near-death experience that further focused his life and distinguished career.

Listen to learn more about the success he credits to Georgetown – how his philosophy on creating a successful company, sports team and film stem from the teachings of Georgetown’s Joseph Durkin, S.J.
