China Accelerator 8x8 Beijing
This speech “Tao of Startups” is one I gave to an audience of entrepreneurs and investors on March 23, 2018 at the China Accelerator 8x8 Event in Beijing. The purpose of the talk was to take the audience through the entire “cycle” of creating a startup and discuss what is important (and what is not important) during each phase. Doing a startup is difficult and can be extremely stressful. It can also be extremely fulfilling. I wanted to lead the audience through a “guided meditation” of sorts to put them in the proper frame of mind for doing a startup—to look at the process from a holistic point of view. I hope I was successful in some small way in accomplishing this!
