Engaging Your Startup Community in the Digital Age

  • Nov 14, 2013 · 6:00 PM

We're excited to be featuring Shervin Talieh and Thomas Knoll for our 16th Tech in Motion: Chicago! Shervin and Thomas, after running a successful blog talking about how to create authentic and meaningful connections with customers, decided to take their show on the road so that they could educate entrepreneurs across the country. This is a huge part of any business, and a must-see for anyone thinking about launching a startup. These days, it's too easy to lean on technology, but this type of marketing doesn't fill the need for real human to human interaction!

Shervin: Over the past 5 years, Shervin has been focused on the changing nature of consumer-to-business communications, and how mobile and social are changing the way we discover, engage and transact with brands.

He is the cofounder/CEO of Drumbi, his tech startup based in Southern California. They are focused on voice + data orchestration, keeping customers in the "buying flow" when calling a business.

Previously, he was a Partner at Accenture, leading the Products Operating Group in Los Angeles.

Thomas: Thomas is the cofounder/CEO of, a startup advisor, and a connector for the #VegasTech community.

He has been a community architect, community cultivator, product designer, social marketer, customer developer, and startup advisor for companies including 500Startups, LaunchRock, Zappos, UserVoice, and Seesmic.
