Entrepreneur Tips & Funding – Julie Lenzer Kirk, Serial Entrepreneur & Former Head, Economic Development, Commerce Dept.

“It’s Easier to Change the World If You Have Money,”

Julie Lenzer Kirk

Julie Lenzer Kirk is an award-winning serial entrepreneur and former head of the Economic Development Administration’s Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (OIE) at the U.S. Commerce Department. She has built and sold multiple businesses and mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs (mostly women) and helped them bridge the gaps to succeed – change the world.

Lucky for us, she shares her hard-won lessons of her own journey (so far) with nuanced insider tips for fulfilling what she calls the entrepreneur’s ‘hierarchy of needs.” These come from her successes, and also from her failures. She wants entrepreneurs to succeed with every fiber of her being because, “It’s easier to change the world if you have money.”

She’s quite candid, as well as insightful, in this engaging and informative discussion with Green Connections host Joan Michelson. As the importance of entrepreneurship and innovation grows, we thought it was a good time to re-air this episode from last year.

Among other points she makes are:

  • Think big
  • Define your niche
  • Where to go to get the money
  • Services and support you need

As Julie said, “you being starving does not help anyone.”
