Starting a business in Sacramento has become easier with entrepreneurs having access to multiple programs and resources. Building and scaling that business is still hard. In addition to raising capital, which is a challenge, founders also need support in finding customers and building operational capacity.
In this episode, I am joined by Steve Boyle, Founder, and CEO of Essential Aero, and Rick Spencer, VP of HaneyBiz and co-developer of The Sacramento Growth Factory (SGF). We explore how Essential Aero has benefited from SGF, and how the experience is different from other business-building efforts Steve has had in Sacramento. We also dive into why Sacramento is so well-positioned to be a great testbed for companies like Essential Aero, especially in establishing a Center of Excellence for aviation safety, operations, and developing infrastructure for Urban Air Mobility.
If you are an entrepreneur, investor, or a corporate or government leader, join me for this episode as we explore how we can win together by creating an economic engine for our community.
