The Six Essential Skills of Extraordinary Entrepreneurs
Each of us has the capacity to spot great opportunities, invent products, and build them into successful ventures—even $100 million businesses. In this talk, Amy Wilkinson, a strategic advisor to start-ups and large corporations, will unlock the six essential skills needed by those who want to make their dreams of innovation a reality. Her guidance stems from interviews she conducted with 200 of today’s leading entrepreneurs for her global bestseller, The Creator’s Code—including founders of LinkedIn, Airbnb, eBay, Tesla Motors, Under Armour, Spanx, JetBlue, and Chipotle—as well as the latest research in behavioral economics and other fields. By zeroing in on fundamental skills that can be learned and applied to a variety of endeavors and industries, Wilkinson reveals what it takes to go from start-up to scale in in our rapidly changing economy.
