Like most of us, you probably get your round up of daily news through financial newspapers, websites and business channels. But if you are an entrepreneur, you need more than that to stay ahead of the curve. In today’s connected world you need to be well-informed about the latest developments across sectors, understand what the experts are talking about, and analyse how these will impact the future.
In fact, today the success of your startup is also defined by much you know outside your core business, and areas relevant to your startup.
To enable entrepreneurs and startup professionals to understand three exciting new areas that experts believe will grow exponentially, YourStory is organising a series of workshops on December 13, December 14, and December 15 at WeWork, EGL. These hour-long, interactive sessions will up your ante and keep you abreast with the latest developments in these fields which are beginning to impact the startup ecosystem.
