Tech Lessons for Non-technical Entrepreneurs – November Lunch ‘n Learn

November 17, 2015 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

No cost to you



Please join iF on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 for a Lunch ‘n Learn on “Tech Lessons for Non-technical Entrepreneurs” presented by our own Executive Director here at Innovation Factory, David Carter!

This unique learning and networking opportunity will include a complimentary lunch!

Technology is so accessible that it’s easy to come up with an idea for an innovation and simply hire developers or engineers to execute your vision. As a result, non-tech founders are starting tech companies all over the place.  In corporations, department managers are launching apps and cloud software to offer to their customers.

Of course you can recruit a technical co-founder, you can outsource, and you can hire a staff of developers. The problem arises in how you communicate that vision to them.

In this session, we will talk about how to document your product in a way that removes abiguity for your tech team and sets the proper milestones and testing procedures. With that, both sides can agree on what needs to be accomplished and when a feature is “done”.  We will discuss how to interate on your application design before you pay to have a single line of code written. And we’ll also talk about how to mock up your vision before you write code to gain the support of your future customers and even pre-sell your product.

Noon-1pm –  Factory 5 and Keynote Presentation
