A Workshop on

How to Select the Right Opportunity & Co-Founders for Your Startup

Time: 6:00 - 8:00 PM 

Venue: Chugh, LLP  295 Pierson Ave #101, Edison, NJ 08837

Thinking of starting a new venture? 

Or have you already launched one?  

Research evidence shows that selecting the opportunity that is the 'Right Fit' for the Founder and the Founding Team is a critical, but often overlooked consideration that determines the viability and growth of a new venture and the satisfaction of the Founders. While there are plenty of opportunities for founders to consider, the more important question is this : Which opportunity is right for YOU? 

This interactive workshop led by Dr. Suresh Kumar, Professor of Practice and Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Programs, New Jersey Institute of Technology, will explore the key metrics to evaluate BEFORE you get started on your startup journey. We will also discuss possible actions that founders who have already launched can take to ensure a better fit between the founding team and the opportunity.
