It’s August and that means Founders Weekend 2016 is just around the corner! In addition to learning from our amazing speakers, I thought you might want to hear a few other reasons to attend the Largest Entrepreneurial Conference in Southern Utah.
Networking - This event will give you a chance to rub shoulders with some of today’s best and brightest entrepreneurs! Make contacts, create marketing and promotion partnerships, find new business services, and meet some truly inspiring people!
Recruiting - Remember I said you can meet some of today’s best and brightest entrepreneurs? That means it’s the perfect place to find new talent for your company, a new business partner, a new CFO, or even a co-founder for your new business. And, they’re even conveniently located all within the same building!
Support - Attending Founders Weekend will not only give us an opportunity to support you but will give you a chance to support the developing entrepreneurial community here in Southern Utah. We have some truly dynamic entrepreneurs in our area who are moving forward with some groundbreaking business ideas. Come lend your experience, your support, and your advice to this burgeoning community.
Inspiration - Have I mentioned our amazing speakers? We are honored to have a stellar line-up of founders, disrupters, and mavens ready to educate, motivate, and inspire us in our entrepreneurial undertakings.
And speaking of these awesome individuals, allow me to introduce you to two more of our speakers.
Eirini Schlosser - Founder & CEO @ Chuz
"Eirini Schlosser is the CEO and Founder of Chuz, a mobile app that curates quality spot content (discovery of restaurants, bars, and cafes) with the ease-of-use of a single mobile interface. Eirini Schlosser completed her masters at London Business School and started her career in investment banking in Morgan Stanley's M&A Execution Team in London. At Morgan Stanley she had exposure working on multi-billion dollar technology, consumer, and retail deals. Though an incredible learning opportunity on how businesses scale, how to problem solve analytically, and how to execute and work very hard, she craved creative outside-the-box impact.
The idea of Chuz was born as a direct solution to a problem that her and her friends faced: the time consuming difficulty in planning where to go with friends for food and drink."
Ariel Jalali - Co-Founder, CEO @ Sensay
"Ariel Jalali is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Sensay, Inc. He has been Chief Technology Officer at StarGreetz, Inc. since January 2010. Mr. Jalali began his career managing technology projects at International Information Investors, an investment company that acquired and built up information based businesses such as LA411 and Kennedy Information. His efforts produced high value databases and digital products out of print directories and newsletters, facilitating portfolio exits for over 60X their purchase price. He then became a senior consultant at Arthur Andersen Business Consulting.
Ariel joined Infotrieve and led its project management office (PMO) overseeing development of a bioinformatics search engine software as a service (SaaS) called the Life Science Research Center, Electronic Lab Notebook and Virtual Library products. He then became a technology consultant working with software development companies such as Petta Technology, Revere Group and UCG. Mr. Jalali co-founded Chikchak."
