- Masterclass: Increase Your Energy – Increase Business Success
- Enhance Your Success: Money, Mindset and Entrepreneurship
-> Program and tickets please find here (http://wefound.org/event/enhance-your-success-money-mindset-and-entrepreneurship/) Let’s talk money with wefound.org! Money is the fuel that drives every business. As an entrepreneur, you need to bring money in your business and manage it to help your company grow. Many entrepreneurs fail very early because they struggle to make their business profitable or find an investor. Do you recognize yourself being trapped in one of the following situations: focusing on what you lack; discounting and lowering the price of your products and services; being afraid to directly ask an investor to invest in you; trying to be all things to all people? Even more, you may be hesitating to try out your business idea because you are afraid to lose all your money and not be able to pay your rent? Our beliefs about money originate from our deepest beliefs about ourselves and early experiences we made. Sooner or later, your money beliefs are going to reveal themselves within every business structure. During this event, you will gain an insight about how to build a profitable business and improve your deepest money beliefs that can potentially destroy your business success. Wefound.org, a global community of supportive female entrepreneurs, invites you to meet three exclusive and inspiring speakers, Sigrun Gudjonsdottir (http://www.sigrun.com/about-me/), Marc Bernegger (https://www.linkedin.com/in/marcpbernegger) and Caitlin Krause (https://ch.linkedin.com/in/caitlinkrause), as well as an amazing crowd of highly dedicated, open-minded and courageous entrepreneurs in order to enhance your entrepreneurial success. On top, this event offers you an amazing buffet and a great variety of drinks, kindly sponsored by Evernote (https://evernote.com/). FAQ: Can men join?

- The Entrepreneurial Love Story: How to turn failures into fortune?
→ The full program and tickets are available on Eventbrite. The amount of tickets is limited: first-come, first-served! http://goo.gl/1NCx2a WEFOUND.org (http://wefound.org/) + FuckUp Nights (http://fuckupnights.com/) Special Edition Failure is part of the entrepreneurial DNA. Most entrepreneurs fail many times before they get their business right. Getting it wrong is part of the journey. During this night we will redefine your perception of failure and success. The keynote speech will focus on vulnerability as the root of courage. You have to be willing to make yourself vulnerable before you can dare greatly, and admitting failure makes us feel vulnerable. After the keynote address, we will discover three entrepreneurial stories of failure. Once you’ve embraced failure, you no longer fear it. Failures and mistakes are not the end of your business or life. They are merely temporary obstacles and experiences that improve our abilities.

- Overcome Your Fear to Fuel Your Entrepreneurial Success
------> Registration and tickets are available on Eventbrite. (http://www.eventbrite.de/e/use-your-fear-to-fuel-your-entrepreneurial-success-registration-16641123047)Limited amount of tickets. First-come, first-served. Watch the event video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qsz0rwhk_Fo Success is a choice. Unfortunately, this choice very often gets stigmatized by our fears. If we are afraid, we are entrenched with a limited mindset. Even most talented people in the world never get their idea off the ground because of their fears. The fear of running out of money, not being good enough, the fear of failing and being overwhelmed or the fear of uncertainty are known to everyone. For an entrepreneur a fear is a killer, as it is the most common reasons why we give up on realizing our vision. The secret that separates those who succeed from those ones who get stuck in their approach to fear. This time we invite a successful female founder and a professional trainer who will share their honest stories and give practical advice on how to approach everyday challenges. This event is the second out of four events in Zurich determined to help you think like an entrepreneur. The sequence “Entrepreneurial Mindset for Success in Business and Life” is organized by WEFOUND.org (http://wefound.org/), a global caring female entrepreneurs community, and Evernote (https://evernote.com/). Our first speaker Marie Ry Bendixen (https://ch.linkedin.com/pub/marie-ry-bendixen/2/557/581) is an expat female entrepreneur. Three years ago she founded The Bookwrap (http://www.thebookwrap.com/index.php), a flexible book sleeve with innovative design and trendy colours, which protects your book from bananas, water, dog ears and other book dangers. Who would have known that such a simple idea could be turned into a successful business. SWISS magazine calls The Bookwrap a must have travel companion. Marie is an energetic young lady with a strong stage presence. She will give an insight to the challenges, fears, obstacles and learnings she has had in the 3 years since the banana attack. Amyn Lalani (http://smtraining.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=118&Itemid=178), professor and director in a few private business universities who previously worked in renown multinational companies and created a multimillion dollar project, will share with you the techniques which will help you to stay focused and committed in very challenging situations. This will help you reach your goals, identify and remove obstacles in your entrepreneurial life. We also want to hear your voice! Be sure to grab the chance of an open mic, tell the audience about yourself or ask for help. After getting to know the crowd, it is always easier to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs you were looking for.

- Start Leveraging Opportunities! Living Entrepreneurial Mindset
Entrepreneurship is not just about information or skills—it's about perspective. Who you are, what you think, your personal habits and beliefs can determine the results you get. 80% of your success is your mindset. Recognizing and leveraging opportunities are the first steps towards entrepreneurial mindset. Successful entrepreneurs are great opportunists; they make the best of their current scenario and find opportunities even in troubled times. This event is the first of four events in Zürich determined to help you think like an entrepreneur.

According to Daniel, getting fired from a very promising position was one of the the best thing that has ever happened to him, he states “otherwise, I may still be working in a job and career that is unfulfilling and feels empty.” Afterwards, Jordi launched his first book which marked the beginning of his new life. In addition, Barbara Lang (http://www.joba-ag.com/kontakt.html), Managing Partner of JOBA-AG.com (http://www.joba-ag.com/), is sharing her new perspective on the current female shift, which is different from media coverage you read every day. She recognized that media and gender research still focus on few female board positions, and continue to ignore tectonic shifts in demographics and educational levels of millions of men and women. It is time for women to think entrepreneurial and see amazing advantages and opportunities of being a woman in business today. We also want to hear your voice!
