Selling Your Brand by Example, 9/23, SPARK Central

Please join us for the kickoff of our Fall summit series with Bob Chunn from ContentOro (registration link) at SPARK Central, 330 East Liberty, September 23 at 9 AM. Over the past year, ContentOro has gone from seed investment to developing a substantial international client base. In recognition of this success, ContentOro won Michigan's Small Business Innovator of the Year Award in January 2016. The summit will focus on a lynchpin of ContentOro's success, using web-based prototypes as a selling tool.

Significantly, ContentOro executed this strategy using interns from local universities, a number of whom have joined as full time employees after graduating. We are targeting this Fall's summit series, and this summit in particular, at those seeking to establish careers in high tech entrepreneurial companies. Bob and his (now full time) team will describe how they conceived and executed their growth strategy as well as future directions.

This Fall, we are pleased to welcome Duo Security as our Gold sponsor. Over the past few years, Duo has developed a strong reputation of community support, and we are grateful for their sponsorship.
