The Startup Journey – April Lunch ‘n Learn

April 19, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

No cost to you

adam jarczyn innovation factory lunch 'n learn workshop

join innovation Factory on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 for a Lunch ‘n Learn on “The Startup Journey” featuring Adam Jarczyn of Slyce!


This unique learning and networking opportunity will include a complimentary lunch

Adam is the current VP of Sales Engineering & Product at Slyce, and has years of experience in the startup world.

In this interactive session, Adam will speak to the startup life-cycle. He’ll be sharing his experiences in the hopes that what he’s learned about building a product, creating a team, navigating the often impossible task of fundraising, going through an acquisition, and dedicating significant time to help others understand how to approach the startup experience with their eyes wide open.

Everyday is a gamble, and Adam’s hope is that his story can help others navigate common entrepreneurial challenges. Areas he’ll touch on include accelerator/incubator programs, assembling your founding team, the role of fundraising, simplifying things as much as you can, acquisition and the post-purchase challenges.

Our Lunch ‘n Learn events are a great way to get out and network while enjoying a free lunch, and learning something new! Please forward this to all of the innovators you know.

About our Factory 5 Presentation

Diaper changing is a demanding task; especially at 3 am when you’re exhausted, it’s dark and your baby is crying. Today’s sleepers are identical to those used 40 years ago. Laifa Baby has reinvented the sleeper; using 2 zippers, our patent-pending design makes dressing and diaper changing quick and easy for parents and babies.
