Entrepreneurs without Tech Skills: Options for Non-Coding Founders

Monday, September 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

RSVP / Register

“Finding a tech cofounder” is easier said than done. Here’s the secret: many startups—even those building tech products—don’t need a software engineer on the team to start, validate, or get traction.

Hear from our panel of founders that haven’t let limited tech resources hold them back from building their company. We’ll chat a bit about what “non-coding” tech they used to build their idea and how they got traction and “faked” some of the technology to show proof of concept.

This event is part of the Founders & C-Suite Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Idea Stage and Early Stage. 

Our Speakers:

Scott Barnett, Founder & CEO, Meetaway

Scott is a serial entrepreneur and is the Founder and CEO of Meetaway, which runs online events attendees prefer to real-world networking events because it’s easier and more time-efficient to meet high-quality people. He’s an advisor, mentor, and speaker in the startup community. Prior to joining his first startup, he worked at Deloitte as a management consultant.

More speakers to be announced soon!

Our Moderator: 

Pardees Safizadeh, Founder & CEO, Refraktor

Pardees specializes in launching and growing technology businesses through digital media. Additionally, she enjoys building out new products for specific markets, as well as increasing the digital footprint of existing products to drive sales.
