Entrepreneurs are Today’s Explorers

I spoke this evening at Murdoch University’s Master Class on Entrepreneurship in Dubai, which brought together a group of people interested in starting their own businesses.

My presentation outlined how I see entrepreneurs as today’s explorers and highlighted the similarities I’ve come to recognise between high altitude mountaineering and starting a business, such as passion, determination, decision making under stress, teamwork, etc.

I also shared some personal experiences from the four amazing start-up’s I’ve had a chance to be part of myself, as well as a few insights into other companies, which have great stories to tell.

This was the last Master Class event of 2012, but keep an eye out for new events in 2013 on the Murdoch University Dubai website!
