“Working for an emerging brand manufacturing in Asia and expanding sales internationally, the EDGE program offered relevant exposure to new ideas, interesting people, and local resources that I will leverage now and as Ventev’s business evolves. The program helped to broaden my perspective on how local organizations of different sizes and business models operate and think about things like foreign exchange, supply chain, and overseas expansion. I’ve already found myself calling upon lessons learned on Communication and Negotiation from the likes of Gerry Sandusky and Ron Shapiro, and subsequent meetings with EDGE fellows have led to new ideas, contacts, and thought processes (Thanks Tabata!). I’m looking forward to a meeting with Deb Tillett at ETC Baltimore to explore partnership opportunities. I leave this program with a better understanding of the Baltimore International Business Community, an eye-opening appreciation for all the exciting things happening in Baltimore, and great relationships that I know I can count on for years to come.”
