A Simple Framework for Early-Stage Startups, w/ Jonathan Greechan

The Founder Institute has helped launch over 3600 technology companies and has worked with over 10,000 early-stage entrepreneurs. Shockingly, 80% of these entrepreneurs make the same mistake when they are first starting out, and it is a mistake that can delay their progress, or tank their startup entirely. At this special event, Jonathan Greechan (Co-Founder of the Founder Institute) will share his learnings and provide a clear framework on how to craft and start building your business ideas.
