Business Owner: Lucas Darway
Business: Arcane Supply Co.
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Advice: “I don’t think I will ever stop being an entrepreneur; not after all that I have learned and all of the needs that you see in people’s lives that can be met through a thoughtful business. The insight, focus and strategy alone are invaluable, especially when you have support to grind through the core functions of running a business.”

Business Owner: Wei Tsay
Business: Avantūr
Location: New York City, New York

Advice: “Save money now! When we started, we didn’t have a ton of savings, but we didn’t want to wait to launch our business, or go in debt so we’ve been investing and building our brand slowly. We pay where we have to (i.e. sample making), but in general, we keep it scrappy and we do things ourselves. Both of us have experience with sewing. Everything else? We’ve learned on the fly… if we don’t know something, we’ll find someone who does, or we’ll teach ourselves.”

Location: Bend, Oregon

Advice: “I seek to be constantly innovating new products, while also seeking more efficient solutions for medium scale wholesale production. This allows me to sell affordable products to more than only the highest-end buyers. It’s a long discovery process and I’m nowhere near the point where I’ll feel like I’ve “made it.” Keep pushing through!”
