Why is it that two individuals can look at the same challenge and one sees crisis while the other sees opportunity? WIB-Capital Region is excited to host a talk by Amita Shukla on Mastering the Entrepreneurial Mind. In an era of constant change, whether through innovation, disruption, or culture shifts, one of the most important factors driving success—for individuals, teams, and organizations—rests in responding with resilience, agility, and creativity.

Today, it is more important than ever for everyone to master the entrepreneurial mindsets that harness and train these soft, deeply human skills. They give each of us an enduring edge, not just in thriving through change, but also in leading innovation, solving complex challenges, and inventing the future.

Join us for a thought-provoking evening as Amita Shukla shares her insights on the power of mind mastery, which emerged from over two decades of experience and research in the trenches of entrepreneurship, innovation, healthcare, and venture capital. She will present a simple new framework and practical tools that anyone can instantly apply to overcome the weaknesses and harness the strengths of their mind. Her interactive talk will make you rethink how you think, reframe how you approach challenges, and reimagine how you unleash your mind’s potential to inspire sustainable impact in your work, life—and the world.
