Luis Paris is an instructor of international business and new venture creation in the School of Business Administration at Stetson University. Paris was born in Venezuela but is today a German national. He has lived and worked in six countries: Venezuela, Canada, Spain, Germany, England and the United States. Because of this international exposure, he is considered an accomplished world citizen. His accomplishments include: founding and directing an international sales and marketing department at a multinational softwood sawmill, generating $120 million annually; restructuring the global marketing efforts of a manufacturer and wholesaler of civilian and military skydiving parachutes; launching three startup businesses, with varying degrees of success; and securing more than $450,000 in capital funding. Paris lives and breathes both the joys and the pains of being an entrepreneur.
