Do you have what it takes? A StartupBus Round Table
Entrepreneurship is likely to be the most difficult path you ever embark on. It is the road less travelled and has been described as "jumping of a cliff while building a parachute on the way down". Why do we do it? Why do thousands of individuals who know the danger take a step down this unworn path? The StartupBus Round Table talks to the individuals who participate in an annual global event that provides hundreds of individuals the opportunity to explore the world of entrepreneurship, hear from them on their self-discovery journey, the people they have met, and their experiences as entrepreneurs.
