with Jeffrey Werner
CEO at The Field Group I Hudson Valley, NY Regional Angel Investor
“Don’t lose perspective. This is an adventure. This is how you know entrepreneurship. Doing a startup, it’s how we explore life.”
CEO Jeffrey Werner of New York’s Hudson Valley shared his unique journey from a rock and roll bass player to over 30 years of audiovisual technology and eventually to his first investment in a startup. Since then he has dedicated half of his life to helping startups. Casual mentoring, he explained, is key to helping the entrepreneurs overcome the challenges they are facing and become aligned with their vision when they fail. Additionally, he spoke about sustaining a creative ability as a motivation for founders to always move forward.
