Even with the prolific startup advice, startups are easier fantasied than done. Along the challenging journey to startup success, many valuable startups lessons, unfortunately, are learned the hard way and, oftentimes, go against the familiar traditional startup wisdom.
Our speaker, Kunal Mahajan, CTO of Zoppa, will lead a discussion about these lessons by sharing stories from his experience in launching several early stage startups and now running the Zooppa’s tech team.
Zooppa is a global social network for creative talent that partners with brands and agencies to launch user-generated advertising projects, inspired by the principles of crowdsourcing. Zooppa’s clients include brands such as Google, AT&T, Nike, VISA, Disney, Philips, IBM, Reebok, Siemens, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, General Mills, Microsoft, NBC Universal, and Unilever. Zooppa was named as one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s 100 Brilliant Companies in 2014. It received $3.4 million Series B funding in April this year.
