Getting S*** Done, Startup Style

Online event

Topic: Getting S*** Done, Startup Style
Speakers: Will Hortman, Director of Product Design & Hannah Luc, Product Designer

We’re going to pull back the curtain on what it’s like to fire up a product design team at a local Charlotte startup. Ekos ran a successful, growing software business for 5 years without product designers or UX architects, so… where to begin? In this talk we’ll tell stories about our first year as a design team - what’s worked, what hasn’t, what’s next - and we’ll demo our Figma process, organization, and design library.

About Ekos:
Ekos was founded in 2014 based on a love of craft beverages and software development. Our founders discovered that craft producers were using manual methods like spreadsheets and clipboards to manage their processes and knew there must be a better way.

The only options available were expensive and complicated ERP systems, so they set out to create Ekos, a business management system that was affordable, easy to use, and carefully crafted for craft manufacturers. Ekos is now the industry-leading software for beer, wine, and cider producers, with features and integrations to automate manual tasks like no other tool can.
