In “The Age Of The Goldilocks Business,” Mallie contrasts the myth of the formulaic startup with the reality of entrepreneurship in a digital world. Before the internet, business had to be done entirely face-to-face, and often locally. Now, even the smallest micro businesses can go global--without ever approaching a venture capitalist. This program can be adapted to cover a wide range of issues surrounding entrepreneurship in the digital age and the service-based economy, including: + How social media is changing business + Why (and how) Millennials are tackling entrepreneurship with little to no on-the-job experience + The cultural shift that has led to the increase in "celebrity entrepreneurs" + The rise of the "mompreneur" (outside of Tupperware and Avon) + And more The topic also allows for a range of presentation styles, from academic and formal to interactive and motivational. This is best suited for a presentation between 15 minutes and 1 hour, but it can also be adapted for a panel or interactive half-day workshop. Workshops are particularly useful for audiences that are interested in starting their own "Goldilocks Business."
