Having a Job is Riskier Than You Think
There are many common concerns for people when they think about what it means to be an entrepreneur — or more specifically it’s the risks that come with it.  For most of our parents, success was a function of hard work over a period of a long time. For our generation, success is a function of the number of things you try. If you want to reduce the risk in your life, start to think more entrepreneurially and start to take control of your own future.
Join us, The Launch Place and Paul Singh as Paul shares his insights into innovation and the links to an entrepreneurial culture. Whether you are a business owner, an employee or a side hustler, come hear how it’s necessary today to just start something because the best entrepreneurs actually take the least risky bets.

Paul Singh is an entrepreneur, speaker, investor, and Airstreamer. Previously, Singh was a managing director at 1776, the largest network of incubators that cultivates and empowers startup ecosystems in the Northeast Corridor, and a general partner in 1776’s Seed Fund.
