Do More Faster
Starting a fast-growth company can offer unparalleled excitement. But it’s easy to get swallowed up by all of the competing demands on your time—and to find yourself working around the clock, with no time for the people you love, the outside activities you enjoy or even the occasional vacation.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Brad Feld—known for putting Boulder, Colo., into the forefront of entrepreneurial communities—has a busier schedule than most as a serial entrepreneur and venture capitalist. And through trial and error, he’s discovered how to focus on what matters—and minimize distractions—so he has time to enjoy a rich life outside of work that even includes quarterly vacations.
As a mentor to entrepreneurs who have participated in the prestigious TechStars accelerator program, he teamed up with TechStars founder David Cohen to share what he’s learned in Do More Faster: TechStars Lessons to Accelerate Your Startup. It offers candid and valuable insights on creating a valuable, scalable company that’s also a fun place to work.
In this online seminar based on his popular book, you’ll learn some essential lessons:
- Creating a powerful vision for your company
- Attracting and retaining people who will truly make it easier to run your business
- Dramatically increasing your effectiveness at work
- Building the type of company that will draw attention from investors
- Achieving year-round work-life balance
The seminar includes interviews with Feld, Cohen, TechStars mentor David Mandell and Everlater cofounders Nate Abbott and Natty Zola.
Laying the right groundwork for an entrepreneurial company can make all of the difference in the results you achieve and the life you lead outside of work. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the most-sought-after business mentors in America.
