SUMMIT AGENDA

Wednesday, October 28 | 3pm - 4pm CST

Keys to Successful Entrepreneurship: Attributes Required for a Successful Entrepreneur

Passion is a simple yet profoundly all-encompassing narrative to describe the essence of a true entrepreneur.

A successful entrepreneur is someone who takes an idea, a product or service, no matter how ‘unrealistic’ it may seem to others, and possesses the will, skill-set and grit to take extreme risks and allow this idea to be crystallized by introducing it into the market. This is the tenacious entrepreneur – one who can dream of the unreal and work relentlessly to convert it into a reality.

Listen to a discussion panel of distinguished entrepreneurs who will provide a better understanding of this exciting subject matter, starting and growing a successful business.
