Super-Awesome Presentation Zone Program at Grind Spaces @ Grind Spaces, Chicago
Feb 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

There is a lot more to giving a good business presentation that a slick PowerPoint deck. The Super-Awesome Presentation Zone Program teaches business people how to properly “choreograph” their presentation for incredible impact. Attendees will learn about everything from proper eye contact to the right tone of voice to what to do with your hands in each of three presentation “zones” including intimacy, excitement and information. This seminar is ideal for entrepreneurs, sales people or anyone who gives formal presentations to a business audience.

This event is open to University of Chicago Alumni and Guests

SXSW 2015 Fair & Square Equity Splits @ Hilton Austin Downtown, Austin Chamber Offices
Mar 16 @ 12:30 am – 1:30 am

You and a partner start a new company and go in “50/50.” You do all the work, but he owns half your company – now what?
Poor equity splits are among the leading cause of failure for startup companies because even small mistakes can demotivate employees or destroy working relationships.
Dynamic equity splits allow founders to calculate exactly how much equity each person in the company deserves based on their individual contribution to the company’s success. Dynamic equity splits account for time, money, ideas, relationships and other resources. Plus, they continually adjust to remain in balance throughout the early stages of a company’s life cycle.
Attendees will learn how to implement a perfectly fair equity split for their company that will make things fair and keep things fair. This seminar is a lifesaver for any boot-strapped startup that wants to leverage equity to start their company with little or no cash.
