Entrepreneurs are seeking emotional support in a competitive environment.
Aaron Robles is a trailblazer in Northeast Indiana’s entrepreneurial scene. Through multiple ventures, he has worked with business-minded people for 11 years, so he has gotten to know the community well.
When Aaron got to know his peers on a more personal level, he realized a need within the community. Entrepreneurs much like himself are driven and innovative; what they lack is emotional support in a competitive and ambitious environment.
Aaron created Founders Spark to give entrepreneurs a safe place to express their fears and obstacles through vulnerable and honest conversations.
Founders Spark creates a support system for entrepreneurs. It offers a community where entrepreneurs are able to stand in solidarity with one another to give advice and solve problems. Founders Spark’s workshops aim to make the entrepreneurial journey easier.
In the future, Aaron is planning more classes and workshops that will give aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunities to grow skills that will make them more confident in their endeavors. Through Founders Spark and its events, the local entrepreneurial scene will grow healthier and more vibrant.
