Entrepreneurship is THE most powerful force in human progress. But what makes a truly successful entrepreneur? Is it something in your blood or can it be learned? What factors allow entrepreneurs to create lasting value and change that not only makes the world better, but “sticks”? Entrepreneurship expert and author Larry Robertson will help you answer these questions with the help of more than 200 entrepreneurial luminaries including the Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, Zipcar's Robin Chase, Blackboard's Michael Chasen, Newman's Own Organics' Nell Newman...
Come meet the author and some of the amazing minds who contributed to the book, including John May (arguably the leading expert on Angel Investing in the country), Eric Olsen (CEO of the largest privately held handwriting education company in the world), and Rick Toren (entrepreneur with the Midas touch for health care venture success, most recently CodeRyte, his third venture!) It will be an evening that will surely change your thinking about entrepreneurship and your own capacity to succeed!
This amazing program includes invaluable insights and connections, a copy of the book and light refreshments.
