What You'll Learn: 
How do you start a company from nothing and manage the process of taking it to a steady state?  Being successful requires more than raising money, hiring employees and finding customers. Every entrepreneur must manage themselves through the wild emotional swings that accompany falling in love with an idea and seeing it through. Lea will tell you the story of how she did it with Lingualcare, the healthcare technology company she founded and sold to 3M and REPLICATE Dental Technologies, her current company, and offer insights and takeaways for everyone thinking about starting a company and those already in the throes of it.
