If you’re like most people starting a business, your biggest fear is failing. Why wouldn’t it be? About half of all new businesses fail within the first five years.

That doesn’t mean it has to happen to you.

Just ask Chuck Eesley. He’s a Stanford University professor who has made a career of researching tech startups. And in an April 12 interactive webchat, he’ll share his data on what every business needs to succeed. Learn about:

  • The most successful startup strategies.
  • What great startup teams have in common.
  • How adaptive your business model should be.

Eesley has spent a decade in and around startups. In addition to his research, he has founded three startups of his own and worked with entrepreneurs around the world, from Kenya to Jordan to Nepal.
