Prototyping 101: Make a Website From Start to Finish

Let's get into inventing! And let's start by inventing new business models, the easiest way to start is by test marketing your idea with a website. Mendel Kurland of Web Connect Chicago will be hosting a workshop to do just that.

    Fantastic meeting! In two hours we learned how to get a web site started. Kudos to Mendel Kurland's outreach efforts and walking us through registering a domain name and using WordPress to build our websites. My website is up and running and I can now refine it to my needs. Meetings don't get anymore productive than this one!
