Join Sheridan Entrepreneurs and Thoughtkite’s Ian Gerald King for a guided tour of first steps in the entrepreneurship journey. This interactive workshop begins with learning common entrepreneurship terms and themes you’ll encounter on your way. Discuss what it means to be entrepreneurial and debunk some of the myths surrounding this career path.
After a pizza break, you’ll get a high-level walkthrough of the LaunchClearly methodology. Focus on how to critically listen to the market before thinking up potential solutions, and avoid the entrepreneur’s sin of solution-centric thinking. We’ll learn together how to absorb critical insights from the contexts in which problems occur.
Tickets are available here.
