Hi! I’m Justin Lafazan. 

Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I attended the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania after a short break to focus on business projects.

I now spend my time building Next Gen, a business hub for tomorrow’s leaders, in New York City. We strive to cultivate the resources, education, and mentorship young entrepreneurs need to overcome obstacles and pursue personal and professional success. 

During my time at Wharton, I released my book - What Wakes You Up? - and donated the launch profits to the Next Gen Foundation, our nonprofit scholarship granting organization. I also frequently speak to organizations, companies, and conferences.

If you’d like to chat, feel free to connect with me here. Thank you!
