Jay Martin, President and CEO of Cambridge House International makes his long-overdue return to the Exchange for Entrepreneurs podcast!
In this episode we follow-up 30 months after our last conversation with Jay when the impact of the global pandemic was starting to irreversibly alter the path of his business at Cambridge House International – a business anchored by several well-known investment conferences. Since that time Jay has moved most of Cambridge’s activities into the online-content world with the exception of the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), which takes its rightful place again in Vancouver from January 29-30, 2023.
In this discussion Jay reveals the reasons for bringing back the show and why its still critically important to bring investors and entrepreneurs together under one roof. He also highlights how his experience with one former Prime Minister re-affirmed his belief in bringing the conference back as an in-person event.
Mr. Martin also discusses his viewpoints on investors newsletters and how he sources his own motivation for writing a weekly digest for his followers. For those looking for advice on who to follow or what newsletters to consider then look no further than Jay’s principles shared on this week’s program.
Welcome back to a new season of the Exchange for Entrepreneurs Podcast!
This year promises to be another compelling year of discussion with entrepreneurs, investors and influencers standing firmly in the intersection between entrepreneurship and the public markets.
Season 3’s inaugural interview is with returning guest Cameron Chell. Cam is the Co-Founder and CEO Co-Founder of Draganfly Innovations Inc. (CSE:DPRO), a global UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) leader in hardware, software, logistics & services.
Cam reflects on his experiences since his last appearance on the show during the onset of the pandemic in 2020. Since that time his company has ventured into Ukraine to deliver life-saving technology to the warring nation. Cam explains why he was willing to take the risk to take his business into a warzone and why there wasn’t any other choice as an entrepreneur.
Mr. Chell is also Co-Founder and Chairman MetaWorks Platforms (CSE:MWRK) – an award winning blockchain and Web3 development platform that empowers Fortune 5000 brands to create and monetize their own metaverse. We spend time reflecting on the post-FTX reality for companies in the crypto/blockchain space and why the fall of FTX might have been inevitable yet necessary.
