Overview: The road to success in the concrete jungle is a long one with no guarantees, especially when it comes to the start-up space. There are many factors to success, skill, determination, money, the right team... some may even say the biggest factor is luck. Join us as we examine just how much luck is involved in turning one idea into a tangible innovative product, solution or business.

At JLABS @ NYC, we invite you to a fireside chat with founders who have been there before and can shine a light on what it really takes to build a company from the ground up. Spoiler alert: it takes a little more hustle and determination than "luck of the draw"!

Speakers: Jeremy Abbate, VP & Publisher, Scientific American MIND and SA Worldview; Cristina Dolan, Co-Founder & COO, IxLedger; Maria Luisa Pineda, Co-Founder & CEO, Envisagenics, Inc.

Cost: $25.00 General Public
