Meaningful COnnections: Our Primary Objective
Entrepreneurship can be lonely and it can be challenging to find other entrepreneurs to build relationships with. Every year we have asked (since 2015) the average number of meaningful connections is 3.6 per person.
Compelling, InsPIRING & UNEARTHED STORIES
The stories told at Startup Storytellers are not told anywhere else. We hold space for powerful and vulnerable stories of rites of passage, courageous tales which have never been told before.
