Episode 58: How to Navigate Career Change and Manage Risk and Uncertainty

This week on the podcast we listen in to the latest audio from our #Emerge video series. In these videos, we sit down and have a conversation about entrepreneurship in Rochester and peek into the city’s startup culture with a member of the innovation community. This week, I sit down with Collider Coworking Community Manager Jamie Sundsbak. We talk about navigating career change, how to handle risk and uncertainty, and ways to build your business while maintaining another full-time job. And as always, we end by talking about the current state of the Rochester entrepreneurial community and what it needs to grow.

“That’s what a true entrepreneurial community should do. We give first, we surface what’s going on. We go out of our way to help people in any way that we can.” –Jamie Sundsbak

Episode 34: Looking Towards the Future- Entrepreneurship in Rochester

This week on the podcast, we sit back and talk about the future of entrepreneurship in Rochester. Developments in the city are expected to come to life this year under Destination Medical Center (DMC), a twenty-year economic initiative to make Rochester a destination medical city. But where do entrepreneurs fit into this picture? A recent ranking by Livability.com and Entrepreneur magazine listed Rochester as one of the top ten small to mid-sized cities for entrepreneurs in the United States. But when you speak to entrepreneurs in Rochester, you hear a different story. This week in the podcast, we talk about what metrics were used in this study and think about indicators that should be measured to examine cities favorable to entrepreneurs and startups.
