Lean Startup Orlando: Navigating the Entrepreneurial Rollercoaster
Talk Title: Navigating The Entrepreneurial Rollercoaster
It’s safe to say that the entrepreneurial journey is not for the faint of heart, and with the staggering statistic that 66% of small businesses fail due to the internal and emotional factors, we’ve decided to shine a candid light on navigating the entrepreneurial rollercoaster for this month’s Meetup.
This talk is going to be a raw and personal story provided by Phil Dumas who most recently founded Unikey Technologies (an Orlando-based company) and appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank. Phil will be giving a real-world account of his startup(s) journey, his incredible highs and lows, and he’ll dive into specific examples and strategies for how to deal with the wild ride of entrepreneurship.
Key talking points and lessons will revolve around:
– Setting goals
– Taking risks
– Lessons learned along the way
We hope you’ll be able to join us for this candid session, and we look forward to seeing you there! *Pizza and beverages will be provided*
