Jeff Spence: Living the Life of an Entrepreneur
From Jeff Layne
Entrepreneur & CSU, Chico Alum
During his time as a CSU, Chico student, Jeff Spence earned bachelor’s degrees in physics and electrical engineering, and also set records running for the track team. But what he’s done since then spurred organizers of the Chico State Center for Entrepreneurship to choose him as the keynote speaker of their annual conference. Since his college days, Spence has founded 11 companies and invested in approximately 40 others. Spence defines entrepreneurship as having a focus on a goal. More than that, he emphasizes, it’s the pursuit of a goal – and there’s often failure to overcome along the way. But Spence tells his audience not to be timid and to keep the pursuit going.
