24 November - Motivational Talk: Two inspiring business stories
WEBINAR: Get inspired by the entrepreneurs Alaine Handa and Polina Agarkova, who both started new businesses in Sweden.
A few words about Polina;
Is starting a business only for brave and extroverts? Join this event to hear how the owner of "Polly Rocket" Polina is running her business being a shy introvert.
Does the idea of networking make you uncomfortable? Is it hard for you to talk about yourself and your business in front of people?
Polina is the owner of Polly Rocket. She makes enamel pins inspired by Swedish culture, lifestyle and kanelbullar.
Polina will talk about how she opened her business without talking too much. Where to find help, network and courage to do what you love and make money on it.
Yes, there will be people and maybe small talk, but we'll go through it together. Or separately :)
A few words about Alaine;
From starting a dance company, running a nonprofit arts organization, event production, wedding business, teaching dance, social media coordination, to writing travel and food articles and eventually publishing a cookbook. Just a few of the various jobs and roles Alaine has done living as an expat in New York, Singapore, Brussels, Malta, and Sweden. Translating cross over skills from each industry to another is what sets an entrepreneur apart from the rest.
How do you take your skillset from different global environments and industries to a company that you want to start. From freelance to fully incorporating or using an umbrella company while you get your foot in the door.
The registration will open up two weeks before the event, at the latest.
