Partnering with the best technology startups and entrepreneurs is a vital part of Morgan Stanley's approach to accelerating tech innovation.
Every summer, Morgan Stanley's technologists meet with cutting-edge firms and industry leaders in Silicon Valley to explore emerging trends and new products. The CTO Innovation Summit, an exclusive event, helps new firms grow and keeps Morgan Stanley Technology at the forefront of a fast changing industry.
Since the inception of the Summit 17 years ago, Morgan Stanley has met with more than 800 startups, many of which have become part of the firm's tech ecosystem, no small feat given that Summit presentations usually mark the first in-depth interaction between the firm's tech leaders and early-stage companies. Later this year Morgan Stanley will host another marquee technology event exclusively focused on fintech providers.
Sure "the early bird gets the worm" but there's something to be said about "the rich bird getting the best worm", and the same can be said about entrepreneurs. It's no surprise that people with family money, cultural capital, or other connections are at an advantage in their entrepreneurial endeavors. These circumstances can be used to their benefit, especially when met with unexpected setbacks as their businesses are brought to fruition.
But what does one do without those kinds of resources or connections - is it possible to become a successful entrepreneur when facing various hurdles?

More recently, Nathalie just released her first book Leapfrog, prompting this discussion about how to become a successful entrepreneur.Leapfrog is a startup bible with 50 proven hacks from self-made women who turned the status quo on its head (spoiler alert - our own President and Co-Founder is one of those women)!

Last Saturday night I had a nightmare. I went to LA for a business trip and I spent hours trying to find my ticket home only to realize that I had never booked it. I woke up in a cold sweat. Once I collected myself - with the help of copious amounts of coffee - I made a triage list to get me through the week.
I've written in this blog before about my productivity methods and the personality tests I took to understand what I needed. I use a journal called the "Productivity Planner" and I time my work in Pomodoro intervals. My goal is to break everything down into simple tasks. Last week, I stopped doing that and not only did I have a much lower productivity rate, but my subconscious started to get overwhelmed.
So my advice to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed is simple: break everything down into tasks and set a Pomodoro timer. Then wait to see if you have dreams about whether you bought your tickets home - you won't have them, at least not as often.
