One of the partners of Three Brothers Wineries and Estates and a new Linden Street restaurant was the first speaker in a new Hobart and William Smith Colleges series focusing on entrepreneurs.
Erica Paolicelli, managing partner of Three Brothers Wineries in Fayette, as well as H.J. Stead Company in Geneva, took part in the new entrepreneurial conversation series, “5 Questions.” HWS said the series offers students a chance to hear firsthand how entrepreneurs generate new ideas, pursue their vision and passion, and navigate both successes and failures.
Sponsored by the Centennial Center, the Colleges said the series “invites accomplished leaders in the business, nonprofit and public policy sectors to share the lessons they have learned throughout their careers.”
HWS said Paolicelli’s conversation with the audience, hosted by William Smith senior Elizabeth Weingast, explored the challenges of being an entrepreneur, recent failures and successes, the nurturing of ideas and assessing how entrepreneurship fits into one’s life path.
