Knowledge In Motion with Amazon Web Services
This exciting new series of events will introduce talks from high profile speakers for an afternoon of education, inspiration and business networking.
Company Building – Keeping your startup DNA when you grow your business. – Talk by Jonathon Southam of Amazon Web Services
At the first Knowledge in Motion event held in Sheffield, we’ll be joined by Amazon Web Services who will look at maintaining your business DNA as you grow. For a startup the main focus is always on customer discovery & validation with less focus on the execution phase, that is, customer creation and company building. From this talk you will learn how companies like Airbnb and Amazon keep innovating without losing their startup DNA.
