A panel designed to guide entrepreneurs on how to leverage startup resources and programs to the fullest extent.
When you begin a startup accelerator or enter into an business development program, you will undoubtedly be excited by the amount of opportunity ahead of you. You will also find yourself overwhelmed — at some point — by all the information and programs in which you feel obligated to participate. That's understandable, in addition to being an active participant in your program you are also there to grow your business. Sometimes those two things can be in conflict. Attend this panel to get advice on balancing opportunities, preparing for programs to grow your business or network, and learning how to generally kickass and make the most of it!
