Place and time
Birzhevaya Liniya 14, ITMO University, room 301/5.
The event starts at 6pm.
On February 13, ITMO University's business accelerator Future Technologies kicks off an exciting new season of open events with a lecture 'Unicorn startups: best cases, insights, and recipes for success' by entrepreneur and Growth Marketing expert David Vasquez.
The term 'unicorn startup', which describes startups valued at over $1 billion, was coined by Aileen Lee, founder of the Cowboy Ventures venture fund, in 2013. The number of these 'mythical creatures' grows each year, but how do they make it to success? David Vasquez will look into the cases of a range of international startups: their victories and failures, insights and solutions that helped them find these much-coveted growth areas. The lecture starts at 6pm.
The lecture will be of use to anyone interested in entrepreneurship or already working on their own project, testing different solutions for development and growth or constantly battling their fears of failure. The best international practices overviewed by the speaker will help participants increase their confidence and steer them onto the right path to success.
Admission is free, but note that you have to register here to participate (the registration is open until 5pm MSK on February 12).
