That Moment My Startup Took Off
Visualising things in your mind is an easy thing to do. Dreaming big for your business is a good exercise. You probably have thousands of thoughts running through your head on where you want to bring your business and what you want it to achieve. Ideas are great. But executing them and having them take shape is another challenge altogether.
In putting up a business, the first phase is often the most difficult to handle. Breaking your ideas into goals and objectives, then into strategies and action points, and actually carrying them out are not as easy as they appear to be. The launch is the crucial moment in your business. It can make or break you. But once you have the right tools and strategies in your hand, you can launch the rocket ship of your idea and make it land on successful terrains and beyond.
Buckle up and prepare yourself for an exciting entrepreneurial ride. Hear from business leaders and pick some tips that you can take with you to your workstation, then get ready to ignite that idea into actions that can propel your startup to great success.
About The Speaker/s
Mel is the driving force behind The Melbourne Map. She conquers technological learning curves, brings artists together, talks about the project to everyone who will listen and is the founder, project manager, researcher, fundraiser, promoter and publisher of The Melbourne Map. The original Melbourne Map was her brainchild after backpacking around Europe and America and seeing the value of illustrated city drawings. Since publishing the first Melbourne Map in 1990 she moved to the country in 1997 and ventured into fish farming for 12 years then back into the arts, working for Back to Back Theatre. Seeing the enormous changes in her favourite city over these past 27 years and after being asked many times if she would update the map, she’s now on a quest to bring the enormously popular image back to life including all the new infrastructure, buildings, sporting arenas, parks and add a few more suburbs to the drawing. Most exciting is the opportunity to marry art with technology and produce an interactive app for mobile devices.

About The Masters Series
WeTeachMe is our vision of the future of learning: inspired and impassioned learning that is run by the people, for the people.
In 2016, WeTeachMe officially became the biggest school in Australia, one giant leap towards our fundamental goal to be the biggest school in the world.

In accordance with this purpose, we have formed a new creative program to assist us in spreading our message into the world. We launched Masters Series by WeTeachMe where we could begin sharing the gifts, knowledge, and experiences of those who have achieved the unimaginable in their life against all odds to entrepreneurs who are still in the starting line.
To achieve this aim, we invite the best and the brightest, the industry movers and shakers, the well-known and influential members of the world of entrepreneurs to share their learnings and experiences in an unwavering effort to help those who are in constant search to find the answers. From creating thriving companies to taking your business to greater heights, we have everything lined up for you where you will learn from the best of the best.
