Ever thought about skipping the corporate job and starting your own business? Or changing the world as a social entrepreneur? Entrepreneurs are people who think out of the box and make their own rules. But where do you begin? What are the typical mistakes to avoid? In this workshop we'll cover what you'll need to be prepared to get through the difficult process of launching a venture and succeeding on your own terms in the world of entrepreneurship. Spoiler alert: you've already got all the skills you need!
