Living the Entrepreneurial Dream IN Chamber: The Podcast

    • Business

Janus Motorcycles recently won the Indiana Chamber’s first-ever Coolest Thing Made in Indiana contest, a bracket-style tournament in which winners were chosen by public voting. The manufacturer beat out 64 of the most recognizable and unique products from the Hoosier state.

The production motorcycle company was co-founded by Notre Dame alum Richard Worsham over a decade ago in Goshen. He shares how the retro-inspired bikes came to be and what it took to turn his entrepreneurial spirit into a business success story.

Janus Motorcycles’ own journey to becoming a viable and profitable company took years, and Worsham credits having an “incremental” vision, a team of mentors and implementing lean manufacturing as key factors in the company’s ultimate success. A lot of things happened “organically,” he offers, adding that selecting the right community in which to locate can do wonders.
