Celebrating on a Shoe-String: Why & How Should Start-Ups Celebrate Success?

Panel Discussion and Celebrations

This is the last session of City Unrulyversity before the Summer Break. Last academic year has been a special one thanks to you, the attendees, the speakers, and everyone else who was part of City Unrulyversity. So we thought it was time to say thanks and to celebrate! We have convened a seriously exciting panel of entrepreneurs, creatives, and researchers to discuss how and why start-ups should celebrate success. 

Starting up and growing a successful company is a difficult task and sometimes failure is something that has to be taken in account given the very hectitc and competive business environment. Hence, celebrating success become key for fostering ideas and enhancing the innovativeness of your company.
