Supercharge your startup – strategies for overcoming setbacks and stagnation

26 April, 2023 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Supercharge your startup - strategies for overcoming setbacks and stagnation

Entrepreneurship is not always a smooth path, and setbacks and failures are an inevitable part of the journey. But what separates successful entrepreneurs from the rest is their ability to fail forward – to learn from setbacks and use those lessons to grow and thrive. As Henry Ford once said ‘The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.’

In this talk, we will explore practical strategies for overcoming adversity and turning failures into opportunities. By tapping into elements of an entrepreneurial mindset, we’ll look at some coaching techniques to help you stay energised. Finally, drawing on real-life examples and insights from experienced entrepreneurs, you will learn how to build resilience, embrace failure, and use setbacks as a stepping stone to success.

Whether you’re a seasoned founder or just starting out, this talk will equip you with the tools and mindset you need to navigate the ups and downs of entrepreneurship.
