47 people went


This month we bring you something quite unique - Bookstr is currently in acquisition talks with some major players. In the process, she's asked us for guidance. We sourced an expert for her and invited them both to have the convo on stage at this month's NJ Tech Meetup, in collaboration with Propelify.

Bookstr is the Buzzfeed for books, generating over 6M video videos each month.

Andrew Weinreich is a long time serial entrepreneur who founded the very first social network, Sixdegrees, whose career includes 4 exits, including Xtify to IBM, and Meetmoi to Match.com. More on Andrew here: http://www.andrewsroadmaps.com/about-andrew Join us for a discussion as we facilitate this Expert Session with Sarah and Andrew. We'll cover the process, the strategy, the negotiation, and whether even having this convo in public is a good idea to begin with.
