NON-Technical People CAN Start Tech Companies!

December 2, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Are you experiencing a real-life problem that you know could be solved through technology, but you aren’t a technical person? Does the “capital letter” jargon that fills tech-talk intimidate you? Is it a surprise that C# is pronounced “C-Sharp” or that “MVP” stands for Minimum Viable Product, which is the first version of a tech product? If so, this webinar is for you! We will dive into how to take the first steps with bringing your idea to life and give you some takeaways to hopefully help you avoid costly mistakes in your new business venture.


Target Audience and Take Away

Nontechnical entrepreneurs who are at the ideation phase, or just starting the development process on a new tech product. Attendees will walk away with actionable steps that can be used at the early stages of a tech company and also some recommendations on how to navigate finding technical talent.
