Does Your Business Solve a Real Problem? – October Lunch ‘n Learn

October 18, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm




Please join Innovation Factory on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 for a Lunch ‘n Learn session featuring Tino Monte!

Tino is the President and CEO of Monte Media Management, a multinational production group and international leader in direct response television. Tino has years of experience promoting innovators and helping them successfully sell their products, so much so that he produced a TV series called Today’s Inventor and profiled over 100 inventors.

At our session, Tino will walk through some of their journeys and highlight common entrepreneurial mistakes as well as success stories. He’ll discuss the chances of a business idea’s survival based on one key premise: does it solve a genuine problem?


This is a can’t-miss opportunity for entrepreneurs and startups to gain insight into what helps a business idea thrive, and hear concrete examples about innovators who have been through the startup journey.
