6:45 pm - 8:30 pm
This session will focus on opportunity recognition. There are lots of opportunities out there – how do you know which one is right for you? This panel discussion will feature three entrepreneurs who have made their choices and are developing their companies. They will tell you how they found their opportunity and the decisions they made in starting or joining their ventures. Many entered our startup competitions – come hear why you should too.
