Coder to Co-Founder: Entrepreneuring for Geeks

Marc Hedlund, Chief Product Officer, Wesabe

Date: Monday, March 26
Time: 8:30am - 12:00pm
Location: America's Cup ABCD

Marc Hedlund talks about entrepreneuing -- how to start your own company, or how to launch a new product in an existing company ("intrapreneuring"). Looking at the topic of building a company from the perspective of developers (people coming from product development who may not have business school experience), we'll talk about finding an idea, enlisting co-founders, getting started, researching and testing your ideas, launching, getting an audience, and fundraising. Along the way, we'll look at some real business ideas and talk about how to evaluate them, and discuss the experiences of recent startups and what they've done that may work for you.
