You are branding one of the most important aspects of any business or service provided, Yourself. An effective YOU gives a major edge in increasingly competitive markets; that's because you are the business. Your knowledge, expertise, and understanding of what to achieve make you a walking business. You are not just the founder or product creator, your vision and its entail make you The Business.

About this event

Millennials are the business! It takes a lot of talent, skill and unwavering passion to become a great entrepreneur during any period. And that is exactly what Millenials are doing; they have changed and continue to change the business landscape. They took social media and owned it. This social-media and tech-savvy generation are starting businesses earlier and getting more creative with every step. 

 They have learned to start a business with little to no startup costs by simply showcasing their niche preferences in their personal and professional interests and spaces. And career advancement is the most important aspect of a job for millennials. According to research more than half (52%) say it's more important than a competitive salary. 

 This out-of-the-box thinking and doing generation has changed the world of business and how we see ;

*An understanding of digital advertising - the continuous rise of influencers who understand they are the business

*Working smarter by doing the work remotely or on their phone

*The customer service industry has become so much more transparent thanks to social media

*Marketing strategy has become much more cost-effective, creative and interactive

and the cherry on top, every business venture is talent and opportunity-driven without breaking the bank.

In a country that is riddled with a high rate of unemployment, how do you stand out and be noticed for that internship, job interview, and possible employment? How do you become a business?

Startup Grind believes that once we promote the understanding of You being a Business, and accelerate free-thinking as to how a person can be their brand and even save money, we would have started a long-lasting conversation. We want startups to take a page out of Millenial's business practice book.
