Establishing the Successful Start-Up
In today's unforgiving new venture environment, investors and analysts have
little tolerance for poor product concepts, weak management teams and empty
value propositions. The rules of the startup game have changed, and in order to
win the entrepreneur must manage within a focused, disciplined framework of
critical success factors. What are the secrets of establishing the successful
start up? How does one find business opportunities, and how and where does one
fund them? What is a winning business plan?
Prof. Dr. Liora Katzenstein will be speaking to entrepreneurs in Winterthur from
16.30 - 18-00 on Saturday 19th June. This will be followed by a chance to
network over a drink with other expat entrepreneurs here in Switzerland .
