    Hi Nicole! I am a foreign student in the US. I have my own company back in my country (Venezuela). I wonder if the information is limited to only american residents?

    Hi Nicole! I just realized that I won't be able to attend the second session of the three and I am waitlisted for tonight. Would missing the second session be critical?

    November 19, 2013

    • Ayguen

      Hi Nicole, based on your note above, does it mean that each session will be quite similar? So is it actually a single session designed for multiple different people? Please let me know how that work as I signed up for all three, but don't wish to use up my limited time for similar info provided. Thank you!

      November 19, 2013

    • Nicole N.

      Nope, each session will be different info Ayguen. There's a line in each event description that says what the focus of each session will be. Tonight is: business idea, funding, and people.

    I've come down with a bug, so I won't be able to make it tonight - I'll free up my spot, but I'd love to get any notes that are available from tonight's session!

    November 19, 2013

    • Nicole N.

      Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well, Anita. Get some rest! I'll let you know what's available in terms of notes.

      November 19, 2013

  • Annette A.

    Bah. I realized I double-booked tonight. I'd love to check out the next sessions though!

    November 19, 2013

      Bummer, Annette! Maybe see you after the holiday.

  • Lenora

    Really excited for tonight! It would be great if there was a way for participants to stay in touch between classes and beyond to offer support for one anothers business ventures with periodic checkins!

    1 · November 19, 2013

  • Lenora

    Just curious, is the focus here for tech/online businesses, or any kind of business?

    November 16, 2013

    • Nicole N.

      Hey Lenora, the info that Sankeetha will be covering applies to any kind of business. =)

  • Jean W.

    Hi Nicole,
    My question is somewhat similar to Nimi's, but I am okay for the second session but I am not sure how late a prior commitment will run on Tuesday. If I am unable to make it to the first session, is there a way I can make up the material to be on track for the second & third?

    November 13, 2013

    • Nicole N.

      Hi Jean,
      I'm not sure how many notes Sankeetha will provide for the sessions (will have more info after Monday evening), but my understanding is that you would still get a lot out of the second and third sessions even if you aren't able to attend the first one. She specifically asked us to have these be separate events that difference people can sign up for (rather than a series that a single group takes all the way through). Hope this helps!

      November 13, 2013

  • Nimi

    Hi Nicole

    Unfortunately I wont be able to attend this session on Tuesday. Is there any other day or way I can have access to this session?

    November 13, 2013

    • Nicole N.

      Hi Nimi, the other two parts of the series are coming up in early December. I don't know if we'll do this particular session again though (depends on the speaker's availability/willingness­--she's donating her time).
