How To Avoid Being A 'Wantrapreneur”
Michael Sikorsky is a powerhouse in Calgary's startup community. A successful entrepreneur his most recent company Robots & Pencils (robotsandpencils.com), founded in 2008, is focussed on all things App related. Robots and Pencils won the Innovation/Leadership awards from Digital Alberta in 2010 for their iPhone work and they are about to launch a revolutionary App creating package. Michael is heavily involved in passing on his knowledge about technology and startups and was recently part of the Haskayne Hour talking to a packed house about the importance of inspiring the entrepreneurial mindset.
We're very excited to be able to bring Michael back to the University to talk about another facet of entrepreneurship, what he calls being a 'wantrapreneur' or deciding to start a business based on your own passion for the project rather than that of your audience. He'll talk about strategies he's used throughout his career to test the waters before fully committing his resources to a new idea and how to avoid falling into the trap of blindly believing that what you are creating is something that people truly want.
