We are very pleased to have Lucinda Duncalfe - a true serial entrepreneur this month. Currently Lucinda is Founder/CEO of Real Food, a start-up supporting people eating plant strong.

Lucinda also served as President & CEO of Destiny WebSolutions, a venture-backed Inc. 500 winner that provided Internet strategy and implementation consulting to large financial institutions. While growing Destiny from $250,000 to $25 million in revenue Lucinda received many honors. She was named America’s 17th Most Influential Consultant by Consulting Magazine, won the Eastern Technology Council’s Enterprise Award for CEO of the Year, and was an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in Philadelphia.

    One of the important perspectives I get from listening to a serial entrepreneur like Lucinda is that there are almost always a lot of problems and challenges to be met to get to success. It is important not to get so discouraged that you give up prematurely, not to mistake adversity for failure and not to come away from a failure believing you cannot ever succeed with an idea in the future.

    Great presentations last night by the four start-ups founders. Jonathan Cooper did a great job telling the story of Stapping Stone, and the standout was Lucinda Duncalfe. She gave a great talk about her vast background with enterprise software start-ups, and the latest company she founded RealFoodWorks.com. Being a flexitarian myself, this was one of my favorite Morris Meetup events and the topic is a personal passion. Food is the real medicine.

    Really great event, "Lucinda Duncalfe knocked it out of the park " Making choices in real time with real money is 100% more important then reading it in any book, even mine... Herb Palmer jr author The lobster and the chicken.
