Slowpreneur Meet Up

#sxsw #slowbiz


This presentation puts a new spin on an old idea. In a world of seed rounds, exit strategies, and failing fast, entrepreneurs today are forgetting what it's like to run a business and your life in a way that a both are rewarding and sustainable across a longer time horizon.
Slowpreneur Creed:
"I want to be patient. I want to grow within my means. I don’t want to incur debt. I will hold back the charging bull. I will continue to live my life. I will learn every day. I will let go of the reins when it’s ready. I will not be greedy. I will succeed."
Slowpreneur :
1) A person who organizes and operates a new business or businesses with a patient approach to profits and growth while taking a measured financial risk.
2) A person who begins a new business or businesses as a side project until it becomes established, thus before operating the business in a full time capacity.
