Don’t Fall in Love: Avoiding Over-attachment to Startup Ideas

Monday, September 16, 2019 @ 1:45 pm - 3:15 pm

RSVP / Register

Do you fall fast? Here’s the cure-all.

In this lightning talk session, you’ll hear from veteran startup founders. Each will prepare a 5 minute presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A, during which they will share past lessons learned from attaching too closely to a single idea that they and their teams fell in love with early on.

Their wisdom on avoiding overattachment to a product/idea—and instead focusing on your business and overall strategies—will help you determine when it’s time to pivot or abandon an idea.

This session will then close with a small panel, featuring all lightning talk speakers, so your questions can be answered.

This event is part of the Founders & C-Suite Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Idea Stage and Early Stage.
