John and Lindsey talk about how Millennials, Boomers, and other generations can collaborate and work together for change and erase the line between secular and sacred as well as business and ministry.
John’s entrepreneurial journey began in 2010 utilizing skills in engineering, design and technology. In that short time he’s had the opportunity to work across a wide variety of industries including industrial construction, fund management, political consulting, data analytics and retail sales. He was also part of the group that developed the “1 Million Cups” program for the Kauffman Foundation, a national program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs functioning in 77 communities across 35 States. His business journey is a bit uncommon but not at all unique to a rising number of entrepreneurial millennials who believe that in every problem lies a solution if we choose to find it.
Lindsey spent her college career deeply involved in a college campus ministry and faced a serious decision upon graduation…“Go into full-time ministry or pursue business?” Coming to the conclusion that the two need not be mutually exclusive and that she could have a greater impact as a business person she chose to pursue an MBA and start a business. Today she is co-owner of a Denver-based marketing firm that specializes in small and early stage business, and a co-working space catering to men and women who are formidable at what they do. She believes smart, creative businesses will change the world and they need partners willing to work as hard and innovatively as they do.
