There are similarities between sports and business.  The goal is to win and both require a strong team.  It all starts with the team you build, how you motivate them, inspire them to do more, and you retain them.   In this event you’ll hear from three experts with extensive knowledge helping start-up succeed, building teams, creating strategies and culture.

There will be more than an hour of online networking via Zoom, available to registrants before the meeting, and a half hour networking post-meeting, that would give attendees the chance to “meet” virtually the speakers and moderator.
