Growing our business in a great environment with other startups, and sharing our experience with Entrepreneurial Spark® mentors and Enablers.

Since joining Entrepreneurial Spark® how have you seen your business change?

As an entrepreneur how have you changed since joining Entrepreneurial Spark®?
I have greatly improved my general business thinking and thought processes – as well as becoming much more active in networking and talking ideas.

If you could give budding entrepreneurs three tips what would they be?
Listening to the right advice is incredibly valuable to your business and your life. One of the most exciting parts of being an entrepreneur is the thrill and exhilaration you get from seeing if something works. Networking up can afford you mentorship opportunities, help strengthen your network and help you learn from people who have the success you desire.

Looking to the year ahead what are you hoping to achieve?
We’re hoping to secure investment and increase our traction during 2016.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received from your mentor?
Don’t listen to every little piece of advice you’re given. Take everything you’re told with a pinch of salt, and learn how to trust your gut.

How would you describe Entrepreneurial Spark®?
Amazing environment to grow any business.
