Vault Startup School Launches with Nextstep.io
Vault Startup School launched it's first session on Tuesday September 10th to a room full of eager listeners as John Schnipkoweit and Chris Quartier shared the Nextstep.io team's experience as part of the Nike+ Accelerator powered by Techstars.
Even though many in the audience were familiar with their story on the periphery, hearing them explain in detail the emotions and the hard decisions they had to make during their journey brought a new perspective to building a startup. Audience members engaged with the founders in a 60 minute Q&A session that was preceded by John and Chris telling their story from how they started at a Startup Weekend in 2011 and where they're at today. The engagement with the audience was incredible, and its obvious there's a hunger for knowledge in our community, and people want to know what it takes to build a successful company. What better way to learn than from a team that has already been through the process and are continuing to build!
Vault Startup School offers an opportunity to get face-to-face with successful entrepreneurs who share their skills, experience and insight to help you find your way. Over seventy-five percent of Tuesday's audience included individuals who have startups of their own and this session proved valuable to those entrepreneurs who are trying to build successful companies. These entrepreneurs came from all over the Creative Corridor and as far away as the Quad Cities and Mount Pleasant. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Iowa and we want to continue to help all those who want to step out and trust their crazy ideas! Read the full recap from the event on Silicon Prairie News.
