For a variety of personal reasons, I was feeling blue today. Just one of those days.
But, while sitting in my office in the Foley Hoag Emerging Enterprise Center, an entrepreneur I know happened to walk in. He and one other business partner are considering starting up a new business. Foley Hoag is hosting them while they do their initial diligence on the idea. Although not something that Sempre would invest in (we are focused on later stage opportunities), it was great to discuss the market opportunity with him. His enthusiasm was infectious. There is nothing like the motivation of a great entrepreneur.
And, it snapped me out of my glum mood!
