Workshop: Building an Investable Team
Thursday, October 24, 2013 from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM (CDT)
Having a great idea is not the gateway to startup success. In reality, the quality of your team is far more important to an investor than your idea. In this workshop, learn what it takes to build a team that is worthy of investment. You'll learn:
- How investors look at startups
- What skill sets to look for
- What qualities to look for in other people
- What questions to ask potential co-founders to avoid conflict
- How to drive high-performance from your team quickly
Note: You must be a U of M student or faculty to attend this event. A valid Student ID is required for admission.
