Event details

Tech entrepreneurship is for T-shirted twentysomethings who work relentlessly, drive Ferraris and seek world domination.

Of course, it isn’t really; it’s a lot more aggressive than that. Matt will talk about the realities of starting and growing a business, fighting to balance the needs of investors, customers and employees, staying true to your vision, and holding it together when your house is on the line. He’ll address the human side of entrepreneurship: its rewards and challenges, and how it enables self-expression in a way that other careers cannot.
