Topic: “An Intersection of IEEE Entrepreneurship and IEEE Consultants Network”

Speaker: Joanne Wong, REDDS Capital


Who is IEEE Entrepreneurship? How Best to work together? Affinities and leveraging the best of each group. Consultants are Entrepreneurs. Consultants already have a product – themselves. They are expanding and selling their own expertise. Entrepreneurs are building a product/service. They are building, expanding, and selling their product/service... and look beyond being an one person consultant. How does IEEE Entrepreneurship help the Consultant expand?
