In this Lunch and Learn, Ken Valledy, co-founder of Progressive Acceleration, shares advice on how to embrace the world of entrepreneurship and converse in the start-up world's unique and occasionally impenetrable language.

Ken hosts the podcast The Catalysts, which focuses on the key benefits of corporates and start-ups working together. He's also the author of The Startup Lexicon, which provides definitions and stories behind more than 200 words and phrases used by start-ups and investors.

Key takeaways from this session:

  • The importance of embracing this ever-changing language and how it can help you to grow your business

  • Keywords you need to be familiar with from day one, and words that are often misunderstood

  • New words on the horizon to keep an eye on
