Abstract: Let's cut to the chase—entrepreneurship and innovation are more than just buzzwords; they are mechanisms for positive change. In this talk, I'll share a roadmap for those thinking of founding or are in the middle of running a startup. We'll go through the critical phases and touch on topics such as idea validation, funding, scaling, and long-term impact. We'll go beyond theory and hear stories from practice. We'll talk about how we can build better futures; laying the groundwork today for a more innovative, responsible, and inclusive tomorrow.
