Do you ever wonder if you have what it takes to start a new enterprise? Do you have ideas from time to time that you wish you could convert to a business? Do you dream of becoming an entrepreneur? Is there a GrubHub, a tumblr, a novel, a production company, or a game like Cards Against Humanity somewhere in you? After running businesses, and teaching students, for many years, Verinder Syal has come to believe that an entrepreneur lies within virtually all of us. And in this dynamic, idea-packed live session, Verinder will teach you the best of his ideas on entrepreneurship—the same ideas he presents in his incredibly popular course at Northwestern University.
Verinder believes that whoever has the will and desire to become an entrepreneur, most certainly can learn the skills to become an entrepreneur. And this session will provide you the motivation and knowledge to begin that journey. You must provide the will and desire, and you must be willing to start. A journey of a thousand miles, it is said, starts with a single step.
In this session, you’ll learn:
What is entrepreneurship?
Where do new ideas come from?
What does it take to be an entrepreneur?
What are some simple ways to get started? (Verinder will share with you two simple Quick Starter Tools - an Idea Generator and a Business Evaluator - that you can start using immediately.)
