Startup Master Class – Take a leap from zero to one

 5 years ago    

Entrepreneurship is not for the weak-hearted. You need guts to take a leap at it

The great secret of our time is that there are still uncharted frontiers to explore and new inventions to create. In Zero to One, legendary entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shows how we can find singular ways to create those new things. 

Innovation is the mother of evolution and Innovative ideas are boon to a civilization. Everyone have a dream to accomplish something in our lives but proper mentorship and guidance from the right people in the beginning of our journey is what most of us lack and ideas go buried with time within us, forever.

But what if there is a place where you can take a leap of your startup idea from “Zero to One“ that too under the guidance of eminent personalities who have years of experience in startups and their business.For all those innovators and leaders who are struggling to get started! – SMC is for you!
