Start-Ups and Downs: The Secrets of Resilient Entrepreneurs shares the wisdom of one entrepreneur who successfully disrupted an entire industry but felt as if she was never prepared for what came next. Mona Bijoor has created a guidebook for navigating the process, from pitching with power to coping with competition, with inspiring stories from respected entrepreneurs, including Nat Turner, cofounder and CEO of Flatiron Health; Courtney Nichols Gould, founder and co-CEO of SmartyPants Vitamins; and Stephen Kuhl, cofounder and CEO of Burrow, intended to lift up anyone determined to keep pushing forward. This book is about resilience. How do the best entrepreneurs think about failure—as it’s happening and in hindsight—and ultimately win?
The discussion will be focused on how to apply the lessons on resiliency among start up founders & entrepreneurs to our kids. Proceeds will benefit the Washington Scholarship Fund.
