Starting a business is hard. Building it into a successful company is even harder. What if you could learn firsthand from the entrepreneurs who have already done it? Already had failures, successes?
Sessions, Tech Cocktail's new speaker series, brings the experiences of successful entrepreneurs to you so you can learn valuable lessons for your startup. Hear their stories in their own words and ask them your questions in an intimate setting.
