For our tenth Tech in Motion, we're going to try something a little different than the last 9 formats, Holiday Special, if you will.
We will still hold to our roots in exploring how to create a great idea and all the challenges that come along with making that idea into a successful company. This time will be a round table highlighting three start-ups that have gone through a "pivot" from their original idea to something different. Some start-ups have gone through multiple pivots and some haven't pivoted at all but the point of this Tech In Motion is to go through the process in general and ask for audience participation to help, critique and ask questions pertaining to the process of pivoting.
We will be featuring three companies that will not only explain what it is that their companies do and why they're passionate about it but the process they have been exploring to get the company to what it is today.
Dan Arwady and Jim Skuros are back from Tech in Motion III where they presented on SoundOff.fm for our Snow'd In Music Fest to talk about their new startup that stemmed from SoundOff.fm but is a completely new company in itself called CanaryWare . They've also picked up a new partner for them to blast off, Dave Bremner.
Dan Novaes will be presenting the journey of MobileX Labs which is a web platform that enables users to create fully functional UI-minded applications for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Bryon Finke from Furnishly will talk about his process from focusing on buying and selling furniture between consumers to embracing (and successfully) local retailers and resellers.
These three companies will also have some information on their idea / company for you to talk one on one with and network after the discussion. As always, we will have beer and pizza, the food that entrepreneurs enjoy the most.
Spread the word! #techinmotion
