F*ck, Startups Are Hard

Let's face it, creating and scaling a startup is hard. The good news? We've assembled a panel of startup founders and executives to share their wisdom (along with a few horror stories of course)! In this session, we'll dive into the challenges that are unique to startups and how you can prepare for and overcome those challenges. Our panelists will reveal mistakes they made while forming and working at startups, things they wish they would have known before they embarked on their startup journeys, and share advice for startup founders and employees alike. By the time you leave this session, you'll be a little more prepared for the startup grind!
