Winter is here, storms are everywhere… but that won’t stop the Yetis from partying! In fact, Yetis know how to stay warm… drinking beer!
This December 13th we are having a San Francisco Game Developer’s Workshop and holiday party combined!
Starting from Zero: Key Lessons in Building a Startup
Aside from having frosty drinks, mind blowing networking time, and thumpy music, we are also proud to have our YetiZen Accelerator mentor Mark Rose as a speaker. Mark co-founded Spare Change – the first and largest micropayment solution for social which later exited to Playspan and then exited again to Visa.
He will talk about his journey of ideation, building a company from absolute zero to two successful acquisitions, and all the places where the company could and probably should have failed yet managed to survive. Mark will share a wealth of really helpful tips, mistakes, and humorous anecdotes.
