Theme: After the Launch
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.
The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”
– Nolan Bushnell, Entrepreneur
We often hear about companies that are launching, and we hear about companies that have sold. But what happens in between? What happens after the launch? There are many successful entrepreneurs in the Teton region, and we wanted to hear what they have been up to. What has happened in the days, weeks, months and years after they designed their website and open their doors?
We’ve asked Aiden Doane of Rex Specs, Brian Modena of TIMBR Creative Agency, and Andi Keenan of Penny Lane Cooperative to share their business journeys with us. They will be on our panel of business owners for “After the Launch”.
