Launching a Successful Career at a Startup

The idea of working at a startup is exciting. It is the adventure of it, working with new ideas in a small, highly motivated team environment, the constant learning and discovery, and finally the possibility of an exponential reward for the hard work. 

However, a lot of people do not know how to successfully navigate the process of finding a suitable job at a startup. Once there, people often find themselves ill-prepared to succeed. 

Raj Jaswa, a highly successful Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur, will share strategies for preparing yourself for a job at a startup, finding the right fit, and becoming successful.
