Full Description

 

Market downturns and upturns carry a severity of impact to businesses of all sizes, with the .com

bust of 2002 and recession of 2008 as immediate reminders. Houston is experiencing a downturn

in commodities that is impacting business in a significant way, from entrepreneurial efforts all the

way to multinationals.

Under such circumstances, how does an entrepreneur or executive reinvent oneself or their

business to continue to create and generate value? How does a corporate employee continue to

grow their career? How does a professional re-frame their thinking to adapt?

 

Join us for a special conversation as Russ Capper, founder of The BusinessMakers Show

interviews Sammy Haroon, whose 20+ years of experience span that of startup entrepreneur,

investor, and corporate executive. Sammy's career has been in creating and monetizing

opportunities in advanced Information Technology, software, analytics, design, and science to

deliver products and services across various sectors, including Oil & Gas, E-Commerce, ERP,

Banking, Finance, CPG, SmartGrid, and Electronics. As an accomplished entrepreneur with

several decades of re-invention behind him, Russ will lend his insights while engaging Sammy in a

discussion about what it takes to re-invent your path to enable personal and business success.

 

This program is being conducted by the TiE Houston Energy SIG, with the

generous support of the Indo American Chamber of Commerce.
