JON BRADFORD, The Startup Success.
Why some startups succeed and some fail? What are the characteristics of a successful startup? What are the odds of making it?
DAVID BROWN, Internationalisation – How & Why
Internationalisation seems like a challenge for many businesses but it may just be the single biggest and easiest win you could attain. David will tell you how to get it right and the results will outweigh what you achieve in your own core territory.
GEORGE BERKOWSKI, How to Build Billion Dollar Apps.
George will guide you from the very beginning when you have nothing but a vague business plan scribbled on the back of an envelope through the nuts and bolts of developing and launching an app and raising the money to grow your business.
