Irish Entrepreneurs

November 7 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

On Thursday, November 7, Irish Entrepreneurs will meet with Drew McKenna.

Please consider joining the Irish Entrepreneurs Group on Thursday November 7th at 7:30 am as we explore ways to increase our productivity and performance, both personally and professionally.  Learn about what top business professionals, educators, politicians and athletes leverage to give them the competitive edge and happiness potential.  We’ll start the evening with our usual roundtable introductions followed by a speaker who will provide insight and helpful human practices.

Drew McKenna ’09, and his co-founder Vijen Patel ’08, founded Pressbox Dry Cleaners in 2013 to provide urban dwellers a better way to handle their dry cleaning and laundry needs. In the six years since, Pressbox has grown to over 1,000 installations across fourteen markets. In July 2018, Pressbox was acquired by Procter & Gamble and now operates under the Tide Cleaners brand. By placing lockers inside apartments and condos, Tide Cleaners allows the resident of their partner buildings to pick up and drop off dry cleaning and laundry on their schedule.  Tide Cleaners picks up, cleans, and delivers the order back to its original location in two business days. All communication is through the Tide Cleaners app. Prior to Pressbox, McKenna worked for Central Street Ventures in Chicago and Notre Dame Football. McKenna and his wife, Maria, spend as much time as possible with their seven month old son, Mac.  Drew is a member of the Notre Dame Ireland Council and the Notre Dame IDEA Center Venture Builder Committee.


COST: $5 donation to the Church. No RSVP necessary.
