ONE DAY TO LEARN FROM REMOTE ENTREPRENEURS!
Friday 27, March - 9 am to 7:30 pm
Let's (joyfully) get what remote work can bring to the table...
We’re all adapting to working remotely. We've started doing Zoom calls, working in smaller squads, redefining how interactions go.
The good thing is that remote isn’t a new trend.
A large number of companies had already embraced it. These remote friendly companies have a lot to teach to us!
The challenge isn’t how to use some new tools. It’s about redefining processes and interactions, daily routines and team organization.
So we've invited entrepreneurs we admire for creating great companies while working remotely.
Now’s the perfect time to learn and meeting new people. And who knows, you may keep on working this way long after the crisis.
