How to swim with the sharks!

Scott Duff is the inventor of MyColdSnap.  An engineer and entrepreneur by day with a passion for inventing, Scott will be sharing with us his experience of being a contestant on Shark Tank. Come hear him talk about his product development, being circled by the sharks, and how he took a challenging experience and made it positive.  Topics discussed will include: mistakes and road blocks experienced, the application, selection, and recording process of being on the show, and the attention and successes that can be gained from the exposure.  This promises to be one of the most interesting and informative discussions yet so please join us ..

    I caught something and decided not to share it with the group. Meetup got hacked so I couldn't retrieve my RSVP. Looking forward to the next meeting.

    I agree, Scott did a wonderful job - and I wish him the best of luck. Hard story to tell, but it's awesome that Scott was willing to do so.

    Thanks to Scott for great story-telling and sharing his insights and, of course, to the organizers! I got some great takeaways from Scott's story and the people I connected with at the event. Scott, - thank you for the Hooler and good luck with your venture!

    Thanks to Scott for his willingness to share his rather painful, but in the end useful, experience. Thanks to Dawn and Ata for continuing to bring great speakers to the group.

      All the thanks should go to Dawn for finding such a great speaker.

    Unfortunately I had a conflict and couldn't make it. Is there a synopsis or slide deck available that recaps his key takeaways? Would love to hear.

      There was so much covered and discussed it would probably make a small book so best to come to our next meeting and chat members who attended.

    Hi, I'm looking forward to the next Meetup! I have an idea for a unique musical instrument on the drawing board and am eager to find folks who want to help me build it!
