FACE Munich: Because I’m worth it… or not?
Thinking about starting up? Already into it?
We challenge you to FACE your fears. REGISTER NOW!
You will meet leading experts in ICT and entrepreneurship who will share their stories and experiences to help you to overcome your fears.
‚FACE Munich: Because I’m worth it… or not?‘ will address the pressure entrepreneurs put on themselves to lead their projects. Many entrepreneurs we’ve spoken to agree that one of their biggest concerns is that they lack the necessary knowledge or experience to manage a startup and turn it into a reality. That’s the idea surrounding ‚FACE Munich‘, where experienced European entrepreneurs will discuss self-perception fears and how to overcome them.
Come join us for a relaxed talk and workshop from an expert panel, hear what they have to say about their experiences about facing the unknown future of entrepreneurship: their fears, doubts, failures, advice and success; ask them questions, talk with them face to face, network with others like you and start your journey to entrepreneurship!
It’s worth it!
Co-founder of KikLearn
Elizabete Dikmane is an 18 year old Secondary School student from Riga, Latvia and is currently developing three startups. She points out that her school requires 11-graders to start their own companies, and that’s where her entrepreneurial jounery began. Recently she was recognized as one of the highest scorers at TechCrunch hackathon in London, where she and her teammate managed to build Kiklearn in less than 24 hours. Kiklearn is a platform that aims to disrupt the traditional university system by decreasing the duration of tech studies down to one year. She graduated from The Leadership Academy and is currently in her last year at Secondary School, but apart from that has yet to earn a degree or have any professional training. That hasn’t stopped her from founding advanced tech projects, such as an artificial intelligence web platform or a personal safety bracelet- “emergency button.” In her own words, “don’t ever let someone make you question your abilities and even if it seems hopeless, just take an attempt.”
