Long gone are the days where Entrepreneurs could garner credibility by being good in one or two areas.  Now they must be well versed in all functions, understanding everything from complex options on going to market, data-driven customer experiences, all while while planning a twenty-vendor deep, cloud-based tech stack for effective marketing, sales, and product development programs.  Plus, they must learn and understand the new languages of investors, legal, customers, vendors, media and their peers.

It can be overwhelming - no one person can possibly have all this knowledge.  As a result, the number of entrepreneurs who get stuck “thinking about starting a business” is 3X more than those who actually start a business.

This is where a “Program Manager mindset” can help. It helps today’s entrepreneurs solve complex problems and manage the people, processes, systems and technologies they need to complete projects.

This session will introduce you to:

  • Strategies for solving complex problems (starting a business IS a complex problem)
  • Program management hacks to stay focused and accelerate idea validation and company launch
  • Examples of proven, tested 90-Day plans to get "unstuck" and complete projects

Don't miss this important session- it will give you an alternative approach to startup development you are unlikely to get elsewhere.
