PS27 Leadership Week Highlights Video

“It started with 2 entrepreneurs at my dinner table, sharing lessons about leadership, we have grown every year since,” said Jim Stallings, CEO of PS27.

PS27 believes founder leadership skills account for 75% of startup success. Leadership Week was started to address the gap of trained startup founders and their teams. The Shark Tank pitch competition, during the week, provides an opportunity for early-stage teams to share their stories and show the skills they’ve learned during program. PS27 plans to continue to expand Leadership Week, especially international participation.
