Six years ago, Marc Nager was sitting on his couch after losing his job, wondering what his next move should be. Was he feeling that all-too-familiar grip known as the fear of the unknown? Heck yes! It’s a moment so many of us as entrepreneurs have experienced. Instead of going after a safe corporate gig, he did what any member of the LivingUber community would do – he chose a next step fueled by passion, not by safety. Marc joined the 54-hour mini-incubator Startup Weekend, part of non-profit UP-Global. He joined a team that built a global community and resource center for entrepreneurs and developed a commitment to furthering the power of entrepreneurs in powering today’s (and tomorrow’s) global economy. On June 18, when I interviewed Marc for The Intrepid Entrepreneur, the news broke that UP Global/Startup Weekend was purchased by Techstars, a Colorado-based accelerator program for entrepreneurs. Listen in as Marc talks about this amazing journey and the future of UP Global, Startup Weekend and Techstars!

A serial entrepreneur in the outdoor industry, Steve Sullivan (Sulli) is Kristin’s guest this week on The Intrepid Entrepreneur podcast. Sulli was the co-founder of Cloudveil, and five years ago, he launched www.stio.com, a mountain-lifestyle brand and retail experience founded in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Stio launched with a website, catalog and storefront on Jackson’s Town Square. Sulli and his team persevered despite the fact that many of his peers in the outdoor industry questioned his vision. To him, that was a sign he was going in the right direction and his vision has been paying off. Stio just opened its first flagship store outside of Jackson in Chicago.
