We've interviewed thousands of successful founders at Starter Story and asked what advice they would give to entrepreneurs who are just getting started.

Here's the best advice we discovered for starting an event management company:

#1: Dietrich Moens, founder of Spacehuntr:

We chatted with with Dietrich, founder of Spacehuntr ($50K/month). In our interview, Dietrich says:

I believe it’s important to preserve a human-to-human approach, especially in a B2B business.


Go for progress and make sure you keep improving. The single fact that you allow yourself the liberty of failing will allow you to take on greater risks.

#2: Celeste Durve, founder of VIPER by KCH:

We chatted with with Celeste, founder of VIPER by KCH ($40K/month). In our interview, Celeste says:

In order to get this off the ground, we kept side jobs and pushed all the money back into the company and paying our staff.


When Disneyland first opened, there was so much trash all over the park they almost considered closing it down because it was completely covered in trash, it was a huge problem. But they solved it by adding more trash cans. So whenever we are in the weeds, we need to remember not to give up and that we just need more trash cans.


We actually don’t do any targeted ads, newsletters, SEO, PR, etc. We don’t even have business cards. We just show up and meet people and do a good job and hope they spread the word.
