The Growthmakers Series Vol. 1: Lessons Learned x Sleek
January 31, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us and other entrepreneurs, business owners and investors as we kick off the year with French Tech startup Sleek’s first event in THE GROWTHMAKERS SERIES.
In VOL.1: LESSONS LEARNED, listen from a panel of entrepreneurs based in Singapore as they share the ups & downs of building a company in one of the hottest startup ecosystems in the world. The panel session will cover:
- Fundraising hiccups
- Talent / Team Building / Leadership lessons
- Market-entry snafus
- Product market fit
Laugh (and cry) with the panel as they reflect on their journey and come away with an understanding of how you can build a strong, scalable business in Singapore (or at least – how not to do it!) . Spend the rest of the evening catching up with old friends and making new ones.
We’re committed to building an ecosystem of support for those wanting to begin their company in Singapore. If you’ve got friends who are considering taking the plunge of starting their own business, or interested in meeting other founders in Singapore, bring them along.
We hope you can make it!
