It’s Not Business as Usual: Surviving the Dark Side of Running a Startup
Events

Join us on Thursday, July 21st at 3:00 pm for an open and honest panel discussion that will break down the emotional walls surrounding the difficult days of operating a new business.

Be obsessed or be average seems to be the motto embraced by most startup entrepreneurs when launching their business. While this drive to stand out from the crowd and always over deliver can lead to success, it can also become the element that eventually destroys both the company and its founders. If hard work is all that is required to win at the startup game, why are so many entrepreneurs still struggling despite their unwavering dedication to their organizations? The answer lies on the other side of the equation, the dark side nobody wants to talk about, the side that is less business and more personal. The human side.

Stress, catastrophic events, defeat, difficult partnerships, work-life balance, and health are all issues that are rarely addressed openly but can be the biggest contributors to the downfall of a startup if not managed properly.

Join us on Thursday, July 21st at 3:00 pm for an open and honest panel discussion that will break down the emotional walls surrounding the difficult days of operating a new business. Learn from key Montreal startup founders of various backgrounds who will share their own experiences and discuss how they overcame the darkest times of their entrepreneurial journey. You will have an opportunity to submit your questions ahead of time when you register, as well as to ask them in an open mic forum at the event.

Following the discussion, there will be a cocktail where you will have the chance to mingle with fellow entrepreneurs, taking away from the event a fresh perspective on how to conquer the physical and emotional difficulties you may face throughout your entrepreneurial journey. Join us. We are all human after all.
