Topics from previous Embark sessions: 

  • Key Elements of a Successful Pitch
  • Influence and the Economics of Credibility
  • Starting a Business in 30 Minutes
  • Fundraising

Embark participants are encouraged to attend all six workshops, but they are free to choose and RSVP to the workshops they would like to attend. 

Through various workshops that focus on areas such as daily goal setting, storytelling, pitching, market segmentation, and fundraising, participants will be able to gauge whether the start-up and entrepreneurial lifestyle is something that fits their goals and life plans.
