Building a Mobile Platform: An evening with SocialRadar

SocialRadar, founded by Michael Chasen (founder of Blackboard), is the latest example of how to build a platform as opposed to just an app or cool product. At this event, Modev members will have exclusive access to the hand selected team responsible for building out the entire stack, from the back end to the front end design. We'll also be hanging out in SRs brand new workspace with stations setup for hands on discussion with the project owners. The following stations will be setup: 

• Wearables lab & Glass

• Managing the back end

• Android - app review session

• Platform building as a startup

• iOS development & design

• SharkTank - SocialRadar Edition - with Michael Chasen and Matthew Lynch offering feedback for four select companies that will give a five minute investment pitch. If you'd like to be one of four companies to pitch Michael - please prepare a 5 minute pitch and reserve your spot here

7:00pm - Welcome Address - Michael Chasen, founder

7:05pm - Technology overview - Ghafran Abbas, Chief System Architect

7:20pm - Networking, demo stations, SharkTank
