Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone
Saturday, March 14
9:30AM - 10:30AM
Hilton Austin Downtown
500 E 4th St
Got the entrepreneurial bug? Want to start a new business? How about moving it across the world? As a young, rising entrepreneurial star, anything is possible, but there’s a lot of preparation and planning needed before the big move to ensure you don’t end up homeless and naked on the streets of your new city.
Led by entrepreneur, Codeship CEO and recent US transplant Mo Plassnig, this session will offer an insider’s perspective on what it takes for a global entrepreneur to leave his comfort zone, step outside the bounds and make the huge move overseas. Mo will offer a play-by-play on his decision to uproot his team (and life) by moving to Boston. Walk through the action plan that resulted in a successful US launch, a network of powerful investors, reporters and friends. Oh, and an apartment fully stocked with all the necessities – including a full drawer of underwear!
