Do you know what it takes to be a gold medal winner?
Grit. Resilience. Entrepreneurship. Passion. Drive. Inspiration. Motivation. This is what the next event is going to be based on.
With the fundamental help of Women in Business, our starring partner for the evening, Startup Grind Milano would like to invite you to participate to the event called “Sport, Business and Startups”
Join us on the 14th of March at 6.30pm in the Aula Magna (via Gobbi) of Bocconi University!
As many people think, Sport teaches us that you cannot allow your endeavors to make you complacent and you cannot let fear prevent you from soaring high. But it also toughens your resilience, enabling you to pick yourself up and get back in the game through and through.
The Startup Grind Milano Director, Andrea Roberto Bifulco, will moderate the double fire chat with Elisa di Francisca -world Olympic games champion - and Veronica Yoko Plebani - world Paralympic games champion.
Professor Paola Profeta will introduce the event.
Following, you're all invited to a networking aperitivo in the foyer offered by Maravea, Mistertea Milano, Luini and Cakes Milano.
Registration is mandatory, don’t wait to take your ticket as the seats are limited!
