Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Trent Mano, Co-Founder of Convoi Ventures, located in Orem, UT, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We're a venture capital firm that is the first to find and fund Utah's next break-out startups.

Tell us about yourself

I've had a winding path in my career, going from finance, to events and travel, to ed-tech, and eventually now in Venture Capital. I've always had building relationships with founders at the core of my career. I love helping founders build their businesses and being a partner in their journey.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Raising a brand new multi-million dollar fund and backing 15 startups since the beginning of the year.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Wearing so many hats! It's extremely difficult to manage time and get everything done.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Just get started and make sure it's something your customers will pay for. Listen to your customers and improve your product based on your hearing. Surround yourself with people smarter than yourself.

Where can people find you and your business?
