“Courage, is when you do it anyway – a mantra for entrepreneurs”
Titus Dittmann, TITUS
Location: Pioneers Club, Ritterstraße 8 (1. OG), Bielefeld

Titus Dittmann (founder of TITUS, skate-aid and multiple other businesses) had an usual journey through life: from a teacher to an entrepreneur. He is a pioneer of skateboarding and is passionate about establishing businesses. In both the world of teaching and entrepreneurship it’s all about getting back on the horse when you fall off. It’s about burning desire, enthusiasm, passion and the ability to suffer in order to accomplish your goal despite all odds. Titus’ mantra, “courage is doing it anyway, despite the odds,” has motivated him through the hard times in business and encouraged him to try out new things. At the October Founders Talk, you will have the opportunity to ask Titus what’s important to keep in mind when you approach difficulties when establishing your business, and how you too can survive rough times and prevail in the face of entrepreneurial risks.
