Our Business Girl Topic of the Day was "Don't Believe the Hype: Tech Edition"
Majella touched on her experience in building her start up, connecting with her partners, meeting with mentors, and the ins and outs of starting a business. Our attendees also shared their entrepreneurial experiences with each other which made for very enlightening and empowering conversations.
Here are a few takeaways from the event:
- Don't be afraid to ask questions. There are people out here that have the answers you need. Get past the fear of being looked down upon because you don't know something. As Majella stated "You probably will never see that person again anyway, so why not ask."
- Investors may not always understand your business so it is up to you to educate them on what exactly your product or service is, who will benefit, and why it will be successful. Just having an idea and believing it will make money is not enough to get the attention of investors.
- Understand your industry and do your research,
