Enjoy this insightful and inspiring Native Business Virtual Summit broadcast interview delivering entrepreneur mentoring & insights from Lance Gumbs who is a Tribal Ambassador for the Shinnecock Indian Nation and the President and CEO of Shinnecock Lobster Factory located on the Shinnecock Indian reservation in New York.
In this informative interview conducted by Native Business Founder, Publisher and Executive Editor, Carmen Davis, Gumbs provides a glimpse into how his entrepreneurial mind thinks and works outside of the box. His entrepreneurial journey started in prep school, when he opened a youth club on the Shinnecock reservation. In addition to his days as a venue operator and DJ, he’s been a proprietor of a gift shop, smoke shop, delicatessen and café, and now he is the owner of the highly successful Shinnecock Lobster Factory in the Hamptons.
As a Shinnecock Indian Nation Tribal Ambassador, he has leveraged Tribal sovereignty and applied his entrepreneurial genius to create revenue opportunities for his Tribe — such as selling advertising for a Tribally owned billboard on the popular Sunrise Highway in Southampton, New York.
