Event date: May 04 2013
Posted by: Nelly Yusupova
From early morning right up to 6:00 pm, both days, TechSpeak NYC was full-throttle tech...learning the technical process from start to finish in Uris Hall at Columbia University Business School. Our NYC event was the third of the TechSpeak for Entrepreneur triple-play following successful events in Phoenix and Silicon Valley.
"You will leave TechSpeak with your head feeling an amazing and gratifying kind of soreness. Do it! You'll be glad you did."
Jumana Abu-Ghazaleh - Founder/CEO of Kith And Kin
TechSpeak for Entrepreneurs is an intensive 2-day bootcamp created and presented by Nelly Yusupova (aka digitalwoman), the Webgrrls International CTO, founder of DigitalWoman. We had an amazing mix of entrepreneurs from Florida, Silicon Valley, Saudi Arabia, Illinois, Washington DC, Missouri, New Jersey, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Washington, Upstate NY, and of course, NYC.
"TechSpeak is very intense and offers incredibly information. This is a must for any entrepreneur who is serious about their vision and wants to know what it takes to bring their idea to life."
Terry Yang - Entrepreneur
Day 1 started with "Lean", customer development, and idea validation then moved onto wireframes and prototypes, and to hiring the right team and creating a company culture.
Day 2 was about pricing and budgeting, to possibly the favorite session project management techniques that put you in control, then user tracking, and infrastructure and scaling.
"I wish I had attended the workshop before. It would take several years to find the tools and techniques that you can learn in just two days. The 2-day TechSpeak for
Entrepreneurs workshop taught me much more than I had learned over the past two years."
Alicia Porrata - Marketing Executive at Omisem
"I'm in my 3rd year of my software company, had TechSpeak been available when I started the company I would have saved a ton of time and money, and had fewer sleepless nights."
Eric Dosal - BrightGauge Software
"I would take it again!"
Lara Land - Chloe the Yogi
