You spoke, and we listened. We asked what you struggled with and we asked what you thought would be helpful.
So, we’ve pulled together some of the Valley’s most successful entrepreneurs and active investors to share their experiences and lessons learned on tough topics like how do I build a team when I can’t even pay my salary; how do I fund my startup idea without investment; and how do we scale from a startup with 10 clients into a multi-million-dollar business from which we can someday exit?
Plus, you’ll hear from several experts with intimate knowledge of the whole entrepreneur-startup-scaling journey who will address big concerns like how do we gain traction and scale sales operations without a sales person; how do I know if the math supports my startup idea, and how do I tell investors that.
This event has been coined The Startup Connection because it’s all about connecting entrepreneurs with one another, entrepreneurs with investors, and theoretical concepts about business with boots on the ground action that truly moves a company forward.
Here are a couple of things you can do today on Take Action Tuesday to ensure you get the most out of this FREE event:
