GIST TechConnect: Innovative Problem Solving with Limited Resources

Program Description

Building a successful science and technology startup is challenging, even in the most developed startup ecosystems. For entrepreneurs who are not in these ecosystems – entrepreneurs who have limited access to capital, a strong network, government and industry support, or limited infrastructure – creating a startup is even more challenging.

However, there are entrepreneurs who have been able to launch and scale startups despite these challenges. These entrepreneurs understood how to leverage their limited resources to solve problems in their ecosystems. In doing so, these entrepreneurs created unique opportunities that helped them grow.

Now it is your turn to do the same. Join our panel of growth experts on the next GIST TechConnect, as they discuss how entrepreneurs with limited resources can overcome challenges facing their startups.

You can join the TechConnect online and send your questions using the chatbox next to the live stream. You can also submit your questions on Twitter using #GISTTechConnect.
