In the Startup world we always hear people say follow your passion, chase your passions or some other iteration of that. However; is chasing your passion really going to help you build a business?

Our July Meetup will consist of a 40 minute talk followed by a 20 minute Q&A with Rachel Brooks, who is the Cofounder and CEO of Citizen Made! Rachel is an entrepreneur, developer and speaker. After her time in the fashion and advertising world, Rachel decided to build a tech startup and has not looked back. Rachel believes that entrepreneurs should chase obsessions over their passions. She will tell us why along with some of the lessons she has learned through her journey.












You will learn:

- The difference between obsession and passion

- How to obtain funding

- How to build your initial team

- How to build a technology business
