MIT’s Paul Cheek open event in Warsaw

How turn a business-plan into a business – this is the question most start-up owners ask themselves. And although there is no single answer to it, it is worth seeking it with the suport of the best ones. A unique opportunity to do so will come on 13 June in Warsaw, where an open meeting with one of the world’s most recognized authorities on innovation-based entrepreneurship will be held.

You have a start-up that makes money mainly from investor transfers instead of the free market?

You have an idea that you should turn into a business, but don’t know how to do it?

Want to turn your business plan into a business?

We have something for you!

On Thursday 13 June at WeWork on Krucza 50 Street in Warsaw you have a unique opportunity to meet and chat with Paul Cheek, MIT Sloan Senior Lecturer and Executive Director of Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, where he is responsible for strategy, vision and operational plans, as well as oversight of flagship projects supporting entrepreneurship.

He is one of the world’s most respected experts on innovation-driven entrepreneurship, an acclaimed entrepreneur, engineer, and educator. Paul was named to Forbes 30 Under 30, the definitive list of young people changing the world.

Throughout his career, he has taught, mentored, and advised thousands of entrepreneurs around the world, ranging from small scale startups to Fortune 500 organizations, in areas such as product development, software engineering and digital marketing. 

In his newest book, Disciplined Entrepreneurship: Startup Tactics, Paul combines technical know-how with essential business leadership expertise. He describes 15 tactics spanning goal setting, market testing, product development, and resource acquisition.

This event is much more than just a book signing – it’s an hour long fireside chat, plus a general reception to really explore the topic in more detail.
