Advice from our Entrepreneurs
Jane Ivanov: “DO NOT be afraid to pick up the phone….Ask for the person in charge!”
Jill Boehler: “You are going to get knocked down…over and over. You have to get up and believe in your product”
Pamela Krutilek: “Find a mentor… Find someone who has gone through the process… and can help you… get your business off the ground. When I started the business… I could have used someone to help me through all of this.”
Sipolt Sisters: “Just do it. Take baby steps, but get started”
Jason Kensey: “I would tell people that everything takes 5 times longer to do and costs 5 times more than you expected. Make sure you have plenty of capital before you start and don’t listen to people when they tell you it can’t be done.”
Christine Ingemi: “See a patent attorney and evaluate your time realistically”
