Sand Hill Road Series: Managing Your Career for Success as an Entrepreneur – at Any Age [SOLD OUT!

SOLD OUT! Join the conversation for an in-depth exploration on managing your career for entrepreneurial success. What unique qualities do you bring to the table? Do you have a professional circle to help you?

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Let’s face it. Whether you are starting your career or entrenched in a domain, this Valley has stirred your aspirations to stake your claim as a successful Entrepreneur. So why is it that despite the potent combination of Wharton honed aptitude and Valley charged aspirations, some are able to dedicate their careers to entrepreneurship and some are captured in the “corporate rut”. Are there industries, companies, products more apt for one kind of Entrepreneur vs another at different stages in their career? What unique assets do professionals at different stage in their careers bring to the table? How do you chart your path? How can your fellow alumni help you in your endeavors?

Join the conversation to:
  • Learn from a Corporate Executive, Entrepreneur, Venture Partner, and Fellow Alumnus
  • Understand the nuances of companies built on deep skills, assets, and engineering
  • Build a framework to uncover your relevance in the start-up ecosystem
  • Connect with entrepreneurship focused alumni with complementary core strengths
