Startuppower conducted its first monthly workshop for emerging entrepreneurs on June 16 at Binary Space in downtown Bryan, TX.
The first workshop laid the foundations of entrepreneurship by discussing the questions "what is entrepreneurship", "who is an entrepreneur", and "why become an entrepreneur," and the characteristics and traits of successful entrepreneurs. There are many definitions of entrepreneurship, but one aspect of being an entrepreneur that is always part of the description is RISK. Everyone agrees that starting your own business venture is risky with no guarantee of success.
Anybody can start their own business, but they need to understand the risk involved, learn as much as they can about starting businesses, and it is very important for them to understand themselves. Knowing your personal strengths and weaknesses is important for emerging entrepreneurs. Lists of hundreds of traits of successful businessmen have been compiled, but the four essential traits for every entrepreneur was discussed.
Starting your own business venture is possible, but not easy. Startuppower Workshops have been started to (1) teach entrepreneurial practices, (2) to bring together established and emerging entrepreneurs, and (3) to help start your business.
Our workshops are monthly. Our next workshop is scheduled for July 14, 2016 at Binary Space (110 N. Bryan Ave.). Four phases of entrepreneurship will be the topic of the workshop. We will also discuss your ideas for starting a business.
