Whether you've simply got an idea for a new business or are on your way to launching, Alexandra will explain how you can start applying important success principles today, even before you've begun doing business. Fear of failure and inside-the-box thinking often pressure fledgling entrepreneurs and start-ups to stray from the real WHY behind what they offer the world.  Alexandra will share with us a few trade secrets for how to do business as YOU (after all, isn't this one of the reasons to want to become own boss?!).

For the pitch the audience will be divided into three groups. Each group will hear 5 people presenting a pitch which can vary in the maturity from Idea to Working company. The aim for the pitchers is to get constructive feedback of what can boost their ideas forward and make them successful.

The requirement for the audience is to be open-minded, share thoughts and enjoy the pitch of the people from the community. Networking and 1-1 follow-ups are highly appreciated!
