Emerging Commerce Council
Thursday, November 29, 2012

Many technology startup entrepreneurs would happily admit that they love nothing more than spending their days on product development. However, financial, legal, recruiting, sales and marketing are all aspects of businesses you cannot afford to neglect.
Join us at our next Emerging Tech Salon for a special afternoon off workshop breakouts as our featured speakers, who range in marketing and business expertise, will lead several intimate discussions.
