During this stressful time for entrepreneurs, our team has been working to adapt to the digital world to continue to provide resources and help to our companies. Below are messages from our team members as we keep you in the top of our minds during and after COVID-19:



Patrick Farrar, CEO

“As we move into a new normal, new opportunities are presenting themselves to business models. Online audiences and communities are huge and require creativity for deeper relationships. Adapt where possible. Take time for yourself to reflect on your business and grow personally. We’re all going through this together. Listening and helping where entrepreneurs need it. Never hesitate to reach out. On behalf of the SUZ team, we want to thank you for your relentless drive to provide value to your community. Thank you for continuing to share your experiences with us.” – Pat



Erin Robar, Operations Manager

“We are all facing new challenges we likely never imagined we would have to conquer. But that has not stopped our members from staying optimistic and looking forward. Because of this, I have never been prouder to be part of such a fantastic community of driven, innovative, and kind entrepreneurs. We have also heard your requests and concerns. We know that the community is looking for ways to adapt to this new world, and we are putting great efforts towards providing the resources you need to do this. So please, keep sharing your stories. We are a community that stays together through thick and thin, so thank you for everything you do for one another.” – Erin



Rachel Adams, Marketing & Events Coordinator

“As we shift into a new and unprecedented ‘normal’ for startups and small businesses, I’m proud to be a part of a team that has been stepping up to the plate to support our entrepreneurs. The Startup Zone community is one of resilience, something that has grown increasingly clear during this stressful time. I’ve been inspired every day of this pandemic by our companies and the innovative ways they have been persevering through this time, and as always, I have learned a lot from them. We will continue to work for you and help you and your business to adapt. Keep sharing your experiences with us, and continue to reach out for help when you need it. I can’t wait to see you all again!” – Rachel
