First of all, a huge thanks to everyone who helped plan the GEA Retreat last Wednesday. The event was an enormous success, bringing in some of the brightest entrepreneurial minds from the community for a fantastic day. If you go to enough of these things you’re going to hear your fair share of generalized speeches about passion and dedication, but the day’s speakers — Brad Feld of the Foundry Group and Dan Caruso of the Zayo Group, to name a few — hit on some great specifics throughout the day that will be helpful to every entrepreneur in every stage.
If you have helpful suggestions to make next year’s event even better, please do not hesitate to contact the GEA soon while things are fresh in your mind.
Brad Feld speaks to the crowd Wednesday at the Red Lion Inn.
