Event description

Description

The Polsky Global Forum: Launch your Venture is intended for entrepreneurs in the initial phases of launching businesses. The program focuses on some of the key-building blocks of starting a new business - customer discovery and entrepreneurial selling. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with other entrepreneurs working through similar challenges, and learn from the experiences of guest speakers and instructors.

This one-day workshop is meant for UChicago and Chicago Booth alumni that have an entrepreneurial idea or are in the early stages of developing a venture. You do not need to have revenue, customers, or even a solidified business model. The purpose of the workshop is to provide attendees with some of the fundamentals necessary to start a business. Participants will register for the program with a business idea and develop their idea throughout the sessions.

The goal of this program is to provide early-stage entrepreneurial education to alumni who are working on their own business ideas. By the end of the Forum, attendees will be armed with the skills necessary to start identifying customers for their business, learn how to present their business and sell their ideas, and develop a network of peers in the region that may be facing similar challenges.
