Entrepreneur Forum: Building A Great Team

team work, building great teams Michigan Tech
Join us on Tuesday, November 8th for this great event!

How often have you heard:  “We don’t invest in products, we invest in people!”, or “Who’s on the management team?”  Time and again, history has shown that companies with ordinary products backed by extraordinary people succeed in the marketplace.  Learn why this is the case.

But if your company is starting out, or one with limited resources, and can’t really afford a Fortune 500 pay package, what can you do to attract and retain the talent that you need to compete in this highly competitive world?   How do you negotiate equity positions?  Learn how to build awesome teams that match your current stage of business development and your current funding status.  Learn steps for supporting highly creative and innovative team environment. Bring your questions and thorniest challenges to this program to advance your technology entrepreneurship skill set.
