“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”Steve Jobs

From shaping the future of cities to improving healthcare as we know it to creating groundbreaking innovations in areas like haptic technology (where users can touch and feel virtual objects on their devices), entrepreneurs in every field are helping to push the world forward. The Entrepreneurship track at TiEcon is all-encompassing and meant for early-stage entrepreneurs in any field; those who are looking to couple the latest information about their sector with the business skills needed to take their product or service to the next level.

This track explores topics like funding considerations, hiring and retaining employees in a competitive startup environment, and how to distinguish your company from the noise already going on in your area. If you’re still at the idea stage, this track is also for you! TiEcon has had founders with just an idea leave with a co-founder in hand, and it’s never too early to start getting the education you need to turn your idea into a reality.
