Do you ever wonder just how other startups did it? For all the big names, all the successes, there must have been challenges along the way. Do you ever wonder what difficulties they faced and how they managed to move forward?
Well, wonder no more — join this Startup DNA meetup on Nov. 18 to hear stories of challenges, doubts, pivots and triumphs from three DMV area startups.
Organized by Lean Startup Academy and held at the Startup Central Campus in Tysons Corner, this event aims to create a platform for sharing the story behind the app, product or service.
The dining app Spotluck (you’ve probably seen their advertising around) is one confirmed panelist at the upcoming event — the two others startups that will present are still TBA.
