Ben Morrow will join us to discuss his experience in launching an app company through community, technology, and education. Ben is a giant in the DFW startup scene and one of the most genuine guys around so you don't want to miss this opportunity to learn from and interact with him.
We will follow Ben's discussion with an "open mic" session, wherein anyone anyone working on a startup that is or wants to apply lean methodologies can speak for a few minutes to get input or just share what they're doing. So come ready to share!
