QVN Toronto - Pathways to Entrepreneurship

QVN Toronto - Pathways to Entrepreneurship
Date: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: 

People often think the only road to entrepreneurship is creating an idea, validating it (hopefully), and starting your own company. What we don’t often think about is the multiple ways we can be an entrepreneur. From starting or buying a business, to creating a new venture inside a corporation, taking over the family business or and even building a successful side hustle while you work full time.

Join Queen’s Venture Network (Toronto) on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Dentons for an evening of mini Ted’esque talks from a range of entrepreneurs as they tell their story of how they started their pathway into entrepreneurship and the lessons learned along the way.

Each speaker will have seven minutes to tell their tale. This will be followed by Q&A from the audience.
