Life after Corporate: How to transition to your own business

We had a lively discussion on transitioning from a corporate role to own business with EWOB members Jelena Radonjic and Olivia Mathijsen at EWOB Talks: Life After Corporate! The event, moderated by Nanditha Vijayaraghavan, explores the issue with examples from Jelena & Olivia’s entrepreneurial experiences.

This conversation is designed as a sharing and exchanging on how to prepare, transition, embrace the challenges and build on the advantages of a new entrepreneurial career, making the leap from the corporate world.
