Untold Facets of an Entrepreneur's Success
Date: December 10, 2011
Untold Facets of an Entrepreneur's Success: Failure, Timing, Dumb Luck & Advice (Good and Bad). Caltech/MIT Enterprise Forum. Beneath the patina of their success, most ventures have a sausage-like story to tell that differs from familiar "how to build a company" lessons and catechism. Right decisions but for the wrong reason, unanticipated market events, fortuitous encounters, naivly ignoring sage advice ... All these go into the mix. Today's presenters have been-there-done-that!
