Ask Me Anything // An Open Discussion with Matteo Rizzi

The entrepreneurship journey can be an interesting one filled with a number of its own challenges. The process involves a journey of improvising and coping with uncertainty. 

With this past year of nonstop crises, economic uncertainty, and social injustices, entrepreneurs and company CEOs have experienced quite uncertain times.

These many uncertainties have wreaked havoc on employees’ lives to make it even harder for management teams to maneuver the landscape.

There are also many obstacles as well as pulling, pushing, and driving forces that entrepreneurs may encounter along the way, and many times the journey is filled with questions of whether this was even the right decision in the first place.
