Startup Conferences for Entrepreneurs – 2012

We are delighted to see thousands of entrepreneurs on SkillPages.  SkillPages’ CEO – Iain Mac Donald, has experience in this area and gives regular talks on entrepreneurship.  Recently he spoke about the 10 key elements to growing a company – great advice for anybody thinking of starting their own business.

Often, the only thing stopping an entrepreneur is getting off that initial starting block.  Conferences can be great for the extra motivational boost that you need.  Surrounding yourself with like minded people, full of big ideas, can help get your first (or next) venture off the ground.
