Startup Grind Tallahassee Hosts Carl Smith (nGen Works)


Carl Smith, nGen Works

Carl Smith is an irreverent ditcher of the nine-to-five and mortal enemy of the overworked lifestyle. Owner and founder of nGen Works, Carl’s role is that of an advisor, to nGen and other companies, on how to create self-sustaining teams that perform at the highest levels. Carl has made a name for himself by creating a new framework for how we get things done, and by enabling us to realign our creative communities. When he’s not conducting business experiments with companies around the world, he’s busy sculpting a new face for the world of work… and play.

    Carl offered guidance with wisdom, warmth and humor....revealing a more peaceful way to reach the goal. It was a very pleasurable evening and great thanks to Carl and all of the Massive / Startup Grind Team who brought such a special event to the Tallahassee Startup community.
