Hi fellow Chicago Web Professionals group members. The Chicago Lean Startup Circle is having an event on August 18th that you might find interesting:
Matt Moog of Viewpoints and Built In Chicago. Our featured speaker is Matt Moog, CEO of Viewpoints and Founder of Built In Chicago, and former President and CEO of publicly traded Q. Interactive. Sign up at the Chicago Lean Startup Circle website: http://www.chicagolea...
He's got great experience leading startups to success at different stages, and is really tapped in to what is going on in the Chicago tech community (there are some big things on the horizon.)
As at most of our meetings, Pathfinder Software's Bernhard Kappe will be giving a five minute introduction to the lean startup approach.
