You have probably heard about Silicon Valley, Facebook, Uber and Airbnb, but what actually makes a startup a startup? How do you break in to the startup world/culture? Who are the people that create and work in startups?
Join us for an introduction to all things startup, including startup culture and the jargon. Learn the basics so that you can confidently ask the right questions and build your own startup!
Meet a panel of people who have started or work in local startups that come from different and unexpected backgrounds. They will chat about their experiences, the types of people who thrive in startup environments, and how to incorporate startup thinking in your business ideas.
