The winds of change are perpetually changing. Especially, where technology is concerned. And wherever there's new technology, there are entrepreneurs looking for opportunities that are freshly created by the new innovations. In the past, many new enterprises were started on a wing and a prayer, with the entrepreneur bootstrapping the necessary funds to start their venture. Unfortunately wings and prayers have not yet proven to be a reliable business model which leads to the entrepreneur without any boots. Enter the new dawn of Small Business. Some of us have learned things from history and are banding together to implement new methodologies so that we don't need prayerful wings. We now know we need a nest and parent birds and a tree where other birdies live. And right now, Cincinnati is one of the best places for entrepreneurial birds to nest and incubate and network in rooted communities of other entrepreneurs and investors. (How's that for an extended analogy?!) This show features Josh Fendley from Ample (birdie) and Rob McDonald of The Brandery (incubator) and was broadcast from Cincinnati (mighty buckeye tree). Ok, I got it, enough with the analogy. Listen though, it's good stuff.
Egalitarian sushi, elegant internet interface and a grassroots Expo for entrepreneurs. Three guests, one show, well actually four guests, but three organizations. Last night we hosted a small party in the WKRC studio, Greg Noe and Tom Van Wert from American Dream Expo (our partners in spirit, but the Expo is all theirs), Josh Fendley from Ample and Stephan Harman from Fusian. Find out what they do and how it might help you or inspire you, then go out there and do it.
