ABOUT THE SESSION

Are you building a startup at the moment? Or perhaps, you think of starting your own company in the future? Business is all about people!

 

According to Prof. Noam Wasserman from Harvard Business School, 65% of high-potential startups fail due to conflict among co-founders. While the market conditions change, strong and synergistic teams stay on the battlefield. It is not about the current business idea but rather, about the synergy, endurance, anti-fragility, and the speed of learning. No wonder that many pro investors wish to invest in people behind the projects rather than in business ideas per se!

 

So, are you looking for co-founders who share your interests and views at business and represent complimentary skills and personalities to yours? Or perhaps, you would like to discuss values and business strategy with a (potential) co-founder whom you’ve already met?

 

Join us for our 4-hour team-building and networking event designed to help startup-ers in the early stage define their needs in terms of team-building, find synergy with their teammates and share responsibilities or help them find a match (or, a mismatch!).

 

It is a shortcut to put your project on a whole new level and extend your personal network — and all that over the course of one day and in a legendary startup-friendly location! This novel, experimental workshop was successfully tested and benchmarked at the headquarters of the legendary Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, California in September 2022, and at the University Startup Accelerator at Jagiellonian University, Kraków in October 2022.

 

WHAT YOU WILL GAIN FROM THIS WORKSHOP

✓ You will get to know yourself better! You will go through a battery of novel tests and self-discovery exercises which will help you determine how you naturally create value in a team and whether you have a DNA of an entrepreneur!

✓ You will take part in the discussion on the nature of entrepreneurship and discuss various approaches to business development.

✓ You will test your co-founders’ Business Intelligence and find out where your synergies are and in what areas you need assistance.
