How does faith enable people to push forward believing they can accomplish what they set out to? What role does faith play when you face challenges in your work? How has faith helped create partnerships and collaborations with others? What is challenging about being a person of faith in the world of start-ups? We will explore these questions and more with a diverse panel of entrepreneurs moderated by an interfaith dialogue facilitator.
