Journey to Success: Overcoming Obstacles in Entrepreneurship

Adversity can make or break a startup. Instead of fearing the pain, successful companies embrace difficulties, push boundaries and create innovative solutions. Join the NVTC Small Business and Entrepreneur Committee on February 18 as we highlight the stories of an entrepreneur who has had to overcome adversity in the journey to success. Facilitated by Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), Scott Case, a technologist, entrepreneur and inventor, will discuss the obstacles that he has had to face and how he came out on top.
