MEET BROOKLYN’S BEST! Startup Success Stores from Maker’s Row, WeDidIt, Tri-Lox and more!
Feb 19, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
One of the things we heard most loudly at last month’s Brainstorm Event was that not enough successful businesses are profiled coming from BK. So, on Wednesday, February 19th at 7pm, come join the community at the Brooklyn Law School for BKE #6: BK Startup Success Stories.
Free beer and drinks will be provided by the good Brooklynites at Lost Tribes Brew and we have collected an amazing panel of speakers from successful business spanning the tech, manufacturing, and local sectors of BK. This’ll be a chance for attendees to gain knowledge and resources on how kick ass businesses are made in BK. Please RSVP and make sure to invite one Brooklyn-based friend to come with you.
Our speakers include:
Su Sanni, CEO & Cofounder of WeDidIt
Su, from East NY Brooklyn, is the CEO of WeDidIt, a brooklyn based tech company that helps nonprofit organizations fundraise. WeDidit’s customers include Amnesty International, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, NYC Coalition Against Hunger and Stupid Cancer.
