Fireside Chat - Built to Succeed

Entrepreneurship is a big job. You are the CEO and the janitor, the marketing team and the R&D department. You’re building a team and a business and an audience and a product, all at the same time. No matter how much you plan, the future is uncertain, and no matter how much you fail or succeed, your inspiration hardly runs dry.

In this session our Expert Panel will discuss key ingredients for success
