The new year is starting strong with several webinars, tutorials, hands-on workshops and the Power UP! conference coming in March! Here’s a review of what’s scheduled so far.
Everything Olds Entrepreneurship Centre
Power UP! Alberta Entrepreneurs Conference: March 25, 2020
If you take 30 linear steps, each one a metre long, you will travel 30 metres, about half the width of a football field. But take those same 30 steps exponentially, and you can circle the earth 26 times!
The year Power UP! is not just about business growth. It’s about expanding business on an exponential curve. It’s about disruptive trends like Uber, Amazon and SpaceX. How do you prepare for this kind of growth? How do you anticipate this level of change? How do you measure and manage it? How can you – the entrepreneur – adopt exponential thinking?
Visit www.powerupab.ca to get all the details, speakers, agenda and more. REGISTER BY JANUARY 31 & SAVE 30%! Be at Power UP! for engaging conversations and higher learning on how we can expand the role of entrepreneurs in Alberta, and boost small business growth in exponential leaps.
Tourism Entrepreneurship Startup Seminar (TESS): April 16, 2020 TENTATIVE
