Suzanne Bergmeister, Executive Director of the Gilliam Center for Entrepreneurship at James Madison University, talks about what makes a successful entrepreneur with our president, Steve Gilman.
Fall in love with the problem, not the solution. It’s what Suzanne Bergmeister teaches all her entrepreneurial students. Because without a problem to solve, your solution has no ground to stand on, and all you’re left with is a cool idea.
In this episode of Brand Story, we talk with Suzanne about what makes a successful entrepreneur, both personally and professionally. Currently the Executive Director of the Gilliam Center for Entrepreneurship at James Madison University, Suzanne has sat on both sides of the entrepreneur’s table, first as a venture capitalist and later an entrepreneur herself. She’s seen the amount of passion, sweat, and tears it takes to make it in the field, and now she’s sharing the best advice she’s gathered over her years working with aspiring and successful entrepreneurs.
