Are You Ready To Get Started?
Co-Sponsored by The College of Engineering and Information Systems
Small businesses are the engine of our economy, yet there remain so
many self-imposed barriers to launching your own startup. How can I
start a company? I don't know how to setup a legal entity! How do I
launch a product? Where will I get funding? These questions hold so
many great ideas back from seeing the light of day, especially for
those still in school or early in their careers. If you have the basic
tenets of the entrepreneurial spirit, you owe it to yourself to overcome
these barriers and explore the possibilities.
In this discussion, Chris will share his experiences in three successful
start-ups and talk about some of the key traits that have led to many
successful entrepreneurs. He will provide a few key introspective
questions to help you assess whether you are really ready to take the
leap and get started!
