Turning Crisis into Opportunity – The Entrepreneurial Journey through Tough Times

The second panel in the Tharawat Talks series discussed how entrepreneurs manage situations of hardship and crisis: We analysed the different types of challenges facing entrepreneurs and shared experiences on how these situations can be turned into opportunities and so ultimately become positive experiences. The panellists were entrepreneurs, sharing their stories, and knowledgeable investors and mentors sharing how entrepreneurs can be supported.
