Hello FairCo TEEM –
I’m still open to anyone who wants to use this account to create events in Westport or other points East of Stamford. In the meantime, I want to make sure you know about an important event on January 24 at the Innovation Center.
We continue our Startup Success series with a presentation by Leonora Valvo, founder and CEO of eTouches. Leonora had the vision to transform a successful events planning company into a 60+ person events planning software company that is listed as the 50th fastest growing software company in the US on Inc. magazine's annual list.
In addition to growing eTouches, Leonora is a real cheerleader for the entrepreneurial growth of Fairfield County. She was the only entrepreneur to speak at Governor Malloy’s announcement of the CT Innovation Ecosystem – and as always, she did a great job.
We need more Leonoras in our region. And when you hear her story first hand, I think you will learn some important lessons on how to target an opportunity and make sure you don’t get distracted into attempting to sell and serve ancillary markets. And that’s just one of the lessons!
I'd prefer you register at the Stamford Innovation Center Meetup site (PayPal) but you can register at FairCo (if you prefer Amazon).
I hope to see you there,
