About the Event
In the masterclass Joe will address indigenous entrepreneurship from a different perspective to the Silicon Valley Model.
He will discuss:
• Growth doesn’t make you a scaleup
• Small, and want to grow? Big, and want to hold on? Get the basics right
• Go in at the right time (it’s later than you think)
• Embrace the era of ‘big’
• Ignoring the startup hype
• The advantages of scale
• Culture at scale
• It’s not all about unicorns
