It’s official. We’re in a recession. Recessions naturally inject fear and panic, which is only heightened by every discussion of market losses, layoffs, bailouts, and somber predictions. We’re only human after all; of course everything affects us personally and emotionally.
Fear is not a catalyst for productivity however.
Joanne Wan, Mixer Chair of the Monte Jade Science and Technology Association, informed us of an event we think you should know about.
Next Tuesday, Nov 14, she will be moderating a great panel (e.g. Trinity Ventures, FanPop, and Mobile80) focused on the topic of transitioning from employee to founder of your own company. The evening will also include a networking mixer filled with aspiring and current entrepreneurs.
Ok, it’s definitely not CrunchGear , but it’s still a fun extension of PR2.0 and my work at FutureWorks PR.
I’ve always had a passion for gadgets and new technology and have been recently featured in Entrepreneur, San Jose Business Journal, Tech Web, AP, among others over the years, for how I use technology in business.
