Every day, from the covers of Forbes and business blogs, we see faces of successful people. We read their incredible stories of how they turned their dreams into profitable businesses. And so we become inspired! Yet, the hard truth is that the majority of businesses fail.

What does it take to become a successful entrepreneur? Is it your professional background, your education or is it the money on your bank account?

Victory comes to those who silence the voice of self-doubt” – Katherine Keller, Founder & contributor at Entrepreneur Magazine. The biggest enemies of entrepreneurs are not competitors, markets or economy, but the voices, that tell us we are tired or we are not good enough.

At our upcoming event we will reveal the secret to success! Become inspired by two outstanding speakers; Samih Sawiris, who is among Forbes world’s billionaires, and Sunnie J. Groeneveld, who was nominated as one of Switzerland’s top 50 business women, in an amazing atmosphere of Evernote startup.

We will start the evening with a guide tour at Evernote’s office to learn more about their work and afterwards hear the stories of our speakers. Prepare with questions for the Q&A round! The rest of the evening will be followed by networking and drinks!

Men are invited to join too. We are looking forward to seeing you!
