On Thursday, November 3, 2016, Burch Business Center organized the first motivational speech of the Burch Startup competition. The lecture “Fund Raising for your Startup” was presented by the professor from Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences, prof. Duerod, where our students had a great opportunity to hear his real-life Startup experience
Prof. Duerod mentioned the shortage of time and closeness of the upcoming competition, thus encouraged our students to actively involve themselves with their own ideas for this event. “Find your interests. Gain skills. Realize the idea. And don’t be afraid to fail. When you learn to overcome failure that is when you will know you are successful. It will follow you through your life, but it will motivate you even more if you stay firm in your goals”.
Professor gave a few bullet points for Startup. “Find a hero – somebody that motivates you to not give up. Have a dream. Feel free to set your own life goals and visualize what kind of life you want. Persevere, innovate and gain experience.”
Participants were interested to hear this motivational speech by professor Duerod and his Startup experience. Surely, the speech motivated students, contributed to their projects and ideas, therefore, anyone who hasn't already applied is invited to become a part of this beneficial project and gain great business experience.
