What’s it like transitioning from government into entrepreneurship?
Ep. 4: Enter the Public Entrepreneur
Two newly-minted entrepreneurs tell us about their journey. Deborah Kane is a former director of the USDA farm-to-school program and the founder of GoCamp, an Airbnb style camper van rental business. Patrick Quinton is the former chair of the Portland Development Commission (now Prosper Portland) and the CEO of Dweller, a startup that helps homeowners build and finance accessory dwelling units. They talk about their new ventures, government vs. startups and purpose-driven organizations.
