Entrepreneurial Alumni Speaker Series @Home – Building Startups in Canada: Tales From The Trenches

July 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

LaunchYU Speaker Series @Home

In this 3 part series, our speakers will dive deep into their experiences as an entrepreneur, exploring their success, failure and lessons.

In this premiere of this at home series, Richard will tell a handful of stories from the lives of his five successful (and a few unsuccessful) tech startups, highlighting some of the opportunities, and the challenges, that come with creating and growing a new tech company in Canada. Subjects include finding and dealing with investors, what to do when no one wants your product (and how to avoid getting into that situation in the first place), and how to navigate exit opportunities.

LaunchYU has partnered with York University’s Division of Advancement to bring you an at-home edition of this series which features top York University alumni entrepreneurs. Each part of the series will aim to capture the real stories, challenges, successes and failures that they have encountered in their journeys.

These talks are meant to INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, and EDUCATE the audience on the realities of launching a startup in today’s world.
