Session Theme: Building Business + Ideas for Risk and Resiliency Workshop De-risk and thrive: How to use frameworks and thought experiments to prioritize and succeed when building business and ideas.We are all familiar with the old adage that most entrepreneurship ideas fail. What if we could adapt a strategy to radically increase chances of success from the outset? A de-risking mindset invites us to see all new projects as a bundle of risks, and helps us focus our effort and energy where it matters most.This session will provide participants with a powerful framework for identifying and categorizing risk. It will also introduce a tool box of mitigation tactics aimed at reducing and minimizing the most critical risks to unleash personal and professional success.
