Videon Central, Inc.
Started first company, Paragon Technology, in '92. It met its demise in '97 as a result of some "interesting" outside investors. Started Videon in '97 based on a good business model and $3,500. Fast forward 14 years to a stable company with 75 people and 10 dogs (yes, we are a dog friendly company).
I have made a lot of mistakes! I can share what went wrong and hopefully help other entrepreneurs avoid those mistakes.
Meeting new entrepreneurs is going to be exciting. I can learn from their fresh ideas and enthusiasm.
Hello! Two years ago I thought would it not be great to have entrepreneurs meet on a regular basis and share ideas. An initial meeting was held at Videon, attended by 20 people. That was the birth of the Centre Region Entrepreneur Network.
Great discussion last night at Legends. It is fantastic to see a wide range of entrepreneurs hanging out together, sharing stories, getting each other motivated to drive our respective companies forward.
