Amid the COVID-19 crisis, everyone is waking up to a new reality of uncertainty. But this isn’t a new feeling for founders – it’s a daily occurrence. Successful entrepreneurs know how to harness the unknown and turn it into a strategic advantage.
NEWaukee and Newance co-founders Angela Damiani, Amanda Daering and Jeremy Fojut join other founders in a candid conversation about facing risk, adapting in the moment and the creative stretch of iteration in the midst of an economic downturn.
This week’s featured founder is Andrew Verboncouer, Partner, CEO & Head of Design of Headway and President & Co-Founder of Digital Fertilizer. We’ll also be joined by special guest Kris Eul, Co-Founder of Klink.
This event is part of NEWaukee’s Cloud Cafe brought to you by Ginger Lazovik, Shorewest Realtors and North Shore Bank. The Cloud Cafe is an online platform for connectors and creators to find belonging during this time of unprecedented isolation. Sign up for NEWaukee’s newsletter for weekly updates about new events.
