Jay Adelson on Entrepreneurship: ‘We Need Crazy!’

In April we hosted our first TECH cocktail Detroit mixer event which rallied together 225+ technology enthusiasts and showcased nine Michigan startups. We had so much fun in Michigan that we plan on head back to Detroit soon (tentatively October 20th or 21st) to find and showcase more local startups. The event also kicked off a weekend of FutureMidwest 2010 conference festivities in Royal Oak, Michigan. Jay Adelson the chairman of Revision3 and former CEO of Digg, was the closing keynote address at the event.

A Michigan native, Jay was in town for the festivities and we were thankful he attended TECH cocktail Detroit. Jay spoke about his entrepreneurial journey and shared his perspective on what it takes to be an entrepenuer. Watch Jay Adelson’s closing keynote in the video (below) and let us know what you think by dropping a comment below – do you think “we need crazy?”
