No doubts, that the most valuable part of the MBA is the alumni network. To make this resource more valuable, to increase the opportunities, gather new insights and to stay on top of the latest business thinking we set up tradition of special events for top business schools alumni networks in Kyiv.

Have you ever thought of starting a new business? Or do you have one already? Do you want to know how it works in real life and how to turn your idea into a profitable enterprise?

In just 3 years, Mario turned his tech-startup FlySpaces into the biggest platform for flexible office space across Southeast Asia (SEA). With only 1 co-founder and a couple of employees on board, he managed to secure $500K in financing in just the first round of funding and enlisted Fortune 500 clients.

Mario will open the main secrets of entrepreneurship and will tell what distinguishes a successful businessperson from an average one. He will share a real business case – the one of his own company! – and will speak in detail about his path to market domination.
It is a case cracking session - we will brainstorm together with the founder which direction his company`s strategy should take.
The case study will be sent after registration.
