The Sacramento Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

Mar 24, 10:00 PM
Entrepreneurs are the heroes of the American economy and now, more than ever, they are on the front-lines in the battle to revive our economic vitality.  

For the past 7+ years, I’ve shared my passion for entrepreneurs via this podcast, my investing activity, as president of Entrepreneurs Organization and more.  In the wake of COVID, I am excited to dive into efforts that elevate the importance of entrepreneurship as a key component of our regional economic development strategy.

Joining me for this episode are several local leaders and boots on the ground community builders who have spent time in the trenches supporting our local founders.  Meet my teammate, Monique Brown, who is driving one of our new efforts to build a nonprofit accelerator called the Growth Factory; Laura Good and Jeff Bennett of StartupSac who have spearheaded everything from Startup Weekends to Startup Happy Hours and much more; and Cameron Law who is leading the charge at the Carlsen Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Sacramento State with dynamic new programs and partnerships in support of entrepreneurs on campus and beyond.

We discuss the opportunities for growth in our region and how entrepreneurship plays a key role.  Interested in learning more or getting engaged?  Contact us here:
