#EntrepreneurEncounters​ is a forum to help entrepreneurs and business owners tell their story and build their dream. It focuses on empowering entrepreneurs to find the money, mindset, and means to unleash their business. To do this well, we have to encounter more entrepreneurs to learn how each of us are moving forward in our businesses and working toward our personal success. That is why this channel exists.

In each episode, we interview current entrepreneurs and those in the entrepreneurial ecosystem to learn about their journey into business. We discuss how and why they get started, obstacles and difficulties they have to overcome, how they find the money to get launched, learn how they use their personal and professional networks, and follow their journey of perseverance toward success.
