What is Founders Summit?
Building on nearly a decade of success serving the needs of the startup community, the organizers of TechDay are excited to announce the launch of a new conference: TechDay Founders Summit, a one day program where startup founders, their executive teams, and idea stage entrepreneurs can access the tools, education and networks that will help them become better, more successful business people.
The conference will feature educational sessions and workshops, one-on-one meetings and office hours, product demos, and high value networking opportunities.
Sessions will address topics identified by founders as most important to the growth and success of their businesses, including fundraising, staff recruitment and retention, infrastructure development, innovation and change management, marketing and sales, business analytics, time management, and much more.
