Event Details

Risk has always been a part of the adventure of entrepreneurialism. However, in an asset class that is constrained by limited resources, how does one best assess, create and edit a concept while exposing the least amount of cash? Luck inevitably plays a role, but as in all games of chance, there are specific skills that one may acquire to improve the odds of winning. Professor Scott Meadow’s presentation will outline those analytical skills essential to developing a foundation for success in entrepreneurship.
