RTP-AITP Chapter Meeting – Young Entrepreneurs
Mark your calendars for September’s Fall Kickoff meeting. We have invited some interesting panelists, so plan on a stimulating discussion.
Entrepreneurs come in all ages and genders, but when you hear about highly successful entrepreneurs, you learn the story of how they started young, made a fortune, sold out and reinvested in the next fortune. In the technology world, these people are the driving force behind most new startup companies.
When I started my career, the Apple 2 had recently been launched. At the time, I pondered the idea of how could I come up with an idea like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak had, and if I did how could I make it reality? Our next panel discussion will provide us with a glimpse of what it takes to be successful, and what it takes to become an entrepreneur.
