Who is Connor Gillivan?

A Brief History

My name is Connor Gillivan and I am an Internet entrepreneur currently living in Orlando, Florida. I am originally from Albany, New York and I received my Bachelors of Arts in Economics from the Lender School of Business at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut.

In the past 10 years…

I built my own landscaping business while in high school, was involved in the founding of the Delta Tau Delta Iota Mu chapter at Quinnipiac University, and founded a multi-million dollar eCommerce company that I continue to run today.

I love experiencing new cultures and have traveled to the Mpumalanga province of South Africa twice for three month periods to advance my knowledge of social entrepreneurship, bottom of the pyramid markets, and leadership with a company called ThinkImpact.

I am an avid writer and have been writing privately for the past 10 years on a consistent basis reflecting upon my discoveries as an entrepreneur.

I continue to run Portlight, the eCommerce company that I founded while in college with a team of 10 people optimizing listings for sale on the Amazon Marketplace.

And I am the sole founder and author of ConnorGillivan.com where I share my insights on bootstrapping million dollar businesses, specifially within eCommerce, to help individuals better achieve their short term and long term goals.

In the future…

I have a strong passion for entrepreneurship and I have visions of how I want to leave an impact on the world in the next 50 years. You can read all about my visions on writing, clean water, and teleportation here.
