Gene is steeped in startups! A veteran startup founder himself; he now works for FCR Media, publishers of the Golden Pages, and runs the StartLocal incubator.

Can you start a company on the road to success in a single intensive weekend? Gene says you’ve got to look at the cumulative effect of a series of such events, growing the skills, building connections and confidence. The four startup weekends will bring together people with very different backgrounds and skills. Mentors will provide insight on development, design and business. Speakers such as Gary Leyden of NDRC will share their experience.
