The brutal truth for any startup is that the chances of long-term success are relatively slim – factors such as a lack of access to capital, poor management skills, a misguided business plan or sheer bad luck all weigh against fledgling companies. So what can startups do to maximize their survival potential? Tesco Technology, an influential and experienced organization, will talk about what they look for in a successful startup, how and why they work with startups and how rookie companies can make the grade and be a long-term survivor. This is a highly relevant webinar for any startup but a 'must attend' for any young company in the energy and retail technology sectors.
