IndieTech: A talk from Justin BIgart, founder of Wisetail
Wednesday FEb. 22, 4:30 - 5:30 PM, Jabs 207
The LaunchCats speaker series continues with Justin Bigart, the founder of Bozeman-based tech company Wisetail, who will give a talk about #INDIETECH.
#INDIETECH IS A MOVEMENT CELEBRATING THE CULTURE OF SUSTAINABLY-BUILT TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES THAT GUARD, ABOVE ALL ELSE, THE POWER OF INDEPENDENCE.
IndieTech is based on the believe that the new faces of freedom are software pros and entrepreneurs that consciously choose lifestyle over luxury and fuel their freedom by working from vans on the beach, mountain-town bars, downtown coffee shops and #INDIETECHcompanies. They are free from the control of venture capital and razor focused on their three stakeholders: customers, employees and their communities. The result is companies with innovative products, meaningful customer experiences, genuine care for their employees, deep community roots, sustainable growth and freedom through independence.
This talk will be a part of Justin's 2017 #INDIETECH College Tour.
