eSAX Founder

Jarrod Goldsmith

“As a new entrepreneur, you must appreciate that the main purpose of networking is to build meaningful relationships.” – Jarrod Goldsmith

With that in mind, Jarrod created eSAX, a series of entrepreneur networking events. Jarrod is an enthusiastic and dedicated communications professional who knows what it takes to make your occasion shine.

Jarrod is also the founder of Sax Appeal, Canada’s Premier Saxophone Ensemble. Sax Appeal is Jarrod’s dream job. He has been playing saxophone for around thirty years but never considered pursuing music as a career – since everyone throughout his entire life has been telling to find a ‘real’ job.

In September 2011 Jarrod was accepted into the Ontario Self Employment Benefit Program (OSEB) and finally got his chance to make his entrepreneurial aspirations come true. Sax Appeal has been a great success for Jarrod, but it took a lot of hard work to literally create a market since an all-saxophone ensemble is not very common. In order to get gigs, he started attending networking events and hasn’t looked back. From becoming actively involved in all regional Chambers of Commerce, he quickly realized that most entrepreneurs did not realize what a great resource they are. Thus eSAX was created to bridge the gap between Chambers of Commerce and new business owners to help entrepreneurs learn what networking is really about!
