Each of us has the capacity to spot opportunities, invent products, and build businesses, even $100 million businesses. How do some people turn ideas into enterprises that endure?
Amy Wilkinson unlocks the six essential skills that turn small notions into big companies. Her research is based on 200 interviews with today’s leading entrepreneurs including the founders of LinkedIn, Chipotle, eBay, Under Armour, Tesla Motors, SpaceX, Spanx, Airbnb, PayPal, JetBlue, Gilt Groupe, Theranos, and Dropbox. From the creators of the companies ranging from Yelp to Chobani to Zipcar, Amy found that entrepreneurial success works in much the same way. Creators are not born with an innate ability to build breakthrough enterprises. They work at it. They all share fundamental skills that can be learned, practiced, and passed on.
In this session, you will learn how to crack the creator’s code so that you can best scale your own ideas.
