Are you an entrepreneur thinking about scaling your business? A small business may not have the resources that are available to a larger entity but there are plenty of processes and strategies that can be implemented effectively for growth and success. Here’s your chance to learn what big business skills you can bring to your small business.
Join our panel discussion and hear from industry experts as they share and discuss:
- Their lessons from big business that now help them in their small businesses.
- How can you share the big vision for your startup by articulating a compelling narrative?
- How can you attract large businesses to buy from your small business?
- How do you find the right person to pitch to at the larger organisation?
- When you find them, how do you automate the conversations so that they are effective (and actually work!) but time efficient?
- How can you find the big investors to fund your startup?
