Pat Whalen has been an advocate for WNY entrepreneurs from day 1. His willingness to help others, to take risks, and to build what others can only dream of is unparalleled here in the Buffalo-Niagara region. I'm proud to be a Sherpa for TReC and to help guide new ventures through starting and growing a business. Looking forward to seeing the great things to come in 2020!
50 percent of all new business fail...the people that make it to the top of Mount Everest, all of them, have a Sherpa. A guide. Having a guide doesn't mean you'll make it but not having a guide pretty much means you wont....I believe [in business] you can't make it alone. It's just too tough. You've gotta have help. You've gotta have guides."
