"Think Smaller: How smaller, lifestyle startups are more likely succeed"

Save the date! This month's speaker is Jason Glaspey. Jason is the Product Manager at UrbanAirship, co-founder of PIE (Portland Incubator Experiment at Weiden+Kennedy) and author of "From Idea to Web Start-up in 21 Days".

Jason has done a number of successful startups and has a number of failures. He's built lifestyle startups from scratch that pay his bills, ran a blog that let him drive a different new car every week, had projects fall flat on their face, and worked in venture-funded companies like UrbanAirship.

Here are some of the things he'll be talking about:

  • Defining what Success means
  • Being Realistic about exits
  • Discussing the failures
  • Hiring out developers
  • Finding partners
  • Shopping out menial tasks
  • Retirement means I work on what I want, when I want, with whom I want

The event is being sponsored by Cloudability. Cloudability lets you manage all your cloud billing in one place. Cloudability will be offering early access to its beta launch next month to all attendees (as well as free beer and wine.)

We have a private room upstairs in the Backstage Bar behind the Bagdad Theatre on Hawthorne St.
