About our Meetup group:
Welcome to the Elabor8 Lunch and Learn Meetup group!
We'll be meeting monthly on the last Tuesday of each month over lunch time.
About the talk:
In this presentation, I'll share the story of my transition from being a full-time employee at Tatts Group, an ASX listed giant, to founding a startup and working from a local co-working space.
I'll share some of the steps that took me along this journey:
- turning an idea into a prototype quickly
- testing the market to see if your concept has promise
- going from part-time to prime-time
- the most significant hurdles and challenges I've faced
I'll also talk about being an "Intrapreneur", how I applied entrepreneurial thinking during my time at Tatts, and how using startup thinking inside an existing company can benefit both employees and organisations.
