Invitation to our next meetup: Startup Essentials - Business workshop for entrepreneurs.

From: Marina A.
Sent on: Friday, April 27, 2012 5:24 PM

I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:

The Dreamstake Academy has been launched with the mission to provide teaching and guidance of the highest academic level to startup leaders on a range of relevant topics. It recognises that team capability is the most important factor in determining startup success. The Academy is designed to complement the capabilities of startup teams by providing expert knowledge.

The Academy will provide a complete course of in depth workshops that will focus on the fundamentals of launching and building a startup. The core curriculum will be supplemented by a number of electives on more specialist topics. The teaching style will be highly practical with total focus on increasing the capability of the individuals within the startup team and accelerating success of the business. 

All courses will be given by recognised experts and will come with course documentation, official acknowledgement of completion and will count towards Dreamstake rating.

During the sessions you will learn all you need to know about how to start a business from leading startup accounting and legal advisors. The events will take the form of a workshop focussing on the fundamentals a startup entrepreneur needs to master whiist launching a successful business. Our top team will point out what startups need to be aware of from a legal, accountancy and IP perspective.  This is a great opportunity to listen to and meet 3 experts in one session and will potentially save costly mistakes in the early stages of creating a new startup.

Attendance will contribute to your personal rating on the dreamstake platform.  This increases your startup Dreamrate.
