In an era of “Dragon’s Den” and “Shark Tank”, there’s a growing interest in what it means to be an entrepreneur. The feeling of true “Freedom” of working for yourself, setting your own schedule, incorporating your values into your work, having the flexibility of creating and living life on your terms is really hard to put into words. It’s a life that’s completely worth exploring and now you can take the first bold steps by learning about the personal side of entrepreneurship. Be inspired by real-life stories of hard work and success of early stage entrepreneurs from around Ottawa and use the opportunity to be part of the conversation.
Entrepreneurship isn’t about sitting back and reflecting on your strengths and weaknesses. It’s about taking a plunge to put yourself out there and get it done. Join us for an interactive panel session to learn about transforming ideas into successful businesses and to understand who can help you along the way. Part of our Global Skillz Day, “The Next Step” will connect aspiring entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds with those who have taken the plunge before them. Our panelists would be entrepreneurs who, within five years of launch, have developed their business into one that’s ready for the next level of growth. In creating this event, we wanted to create a dialogue between those who are interested in entrepreneurship and the people who have lived it. Featuring an interactive Q&A conversation and a chance to meet with the panelists, it is the best way to learn about starting a business! Best of all, together we will celebrate the early success of some handpicked early stage entrepreneurs and the important contribution their businesses have on our economy.
