Each year at our Entrepreneurial Summit, we gather a group of successful Oregon entrepreneurs to share their stories. Though they hail from diverse backgrounds and industries, they all share some things in common. They dream big and they have done the work to make their dreams a reality.
This year, our stories focused on the leaps of faith our speakers have had to take to start and scale their businesses. All entrepreneurs know that you can’t grow a company with grit and skill alone. At a certain point, you have to close your eyes and jump. Sometimes you’ll fly, and sometimes you’ll fall.
At our 2017 Entrepreneurial Summit: Leap of Faith, we heard about failure, hope, fear, determination, challenge, and triumph. The full video of each story will be available soon, but for now, enjoy these six nuggets of hard-won wisdom.
