Michelle Rowe Hallsten, shareholder at Greenberg Traurig LLP, will be speaking in this event on Friday, August 23rd. This course is designed to improve your skills as a CEO. It is not primarily about how to write a business plan or how to make the best pitch to investors. The goal is to give you a broad set of skills. The course will cover such concepts as the Business Model Canvas (the 9 essential plan elements), the Lean Start Up ("Build-Measure-Learn" and the "Pivot"), and Crossing the Chasm (finding a niche as a beachhead into the market). Day 1 of the course will focus on identifying opportunities and building your business model. Day 2 will focus on acquiring resources and managing the team. Day 3 will focus on growth and exits.
