WITS: The Entrepreneurship Rollercoaster

This talk by Cristina Luminea is going to bring you through the experience of being an entrepreneur from the very beginnings of overcoming the fear of quitting your job and starting up to the point of having to make the decision of closing down. It will cover the ups and downs of the entrepreneurship journey, building educational products with kids and for kids, launching a product worldwide and lessons learned along the way.
