Attending this conference is training cum networking event in the Startup and VC community and indeed our business requires the same level of trajectory growth as other equally strong candidates. So, part of the goal for me of course is to WIN the award, the other part of the goal is to GET TRAINED in pitching, negotiating term sheets, turning down offers from the investing – Super Angels, Angels or VCs interested in us.
It’s not unusual for a b-school student or graduate to have read about the various strategy frameworks such as Porter’s Five Forces, Value-Chain analysis, Barney’s Resource-based View, and the Blue Ocean Strategy by Kim & Mauborgne. I am delighted to have the opportunity to have hands on experience and training from the authorised regional center of BOS this coming week. UCSI University of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will be hosting a practitioner course and certification workshops and I have been invited to join. On this occasion, my participation as the founder of Art Group Limited at HK Cyberport had also sponsored as part of the training subsidy to send me to this center to be trained and certified. xD: Oct 27-29, 2010.
