Navigating the firehose of startup advice and truisms

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When it comes to startup advice, there IS such a thing as too much of a good thing.

There is no shortage of advice when it comes to how to start and scale a company. Advisors, investors, fellow founders - they all have different perspectives and experiences to share, on a variety of topics from teams to fundraising. It can be overwhelming to balance these opinions and learn how to prioritize what’s right for each founder and company.

Come hear from other entrepreneurs, mentors and investors about the best (and worst) advice they’ve received, how they decide what advice to give to other founders, and how to go about navigating it all.
