Last time we had two talks about building IT business, where Ervīns shared big companies story and Igors – small agencies story. But there is at least one more genre of doing business and it is “solopreneurship”. This time Andrejs will share his experience in as solopreneur and we will have panel discussion about differences between these 3 business genres. Plus there will be chance to find possible partners at our contact exchange.

Agenda for IT business focused 104th DevClub.lv
The path of solopreneur
Description: Being an independent consultant means that you have to learn things that would usually be handled by the employer. Being solo means that you have to search for clients, build up your reputation, handle accounting, etc. The hardest part was to stop worrying. Was it scary to go solo? Yes. Was it worth it? Yes. Let me share my story of working solo for 15 years.
