GeekWire’s Todd Bishop Visits Monday

Good morning DMSers.

Our guest speaker Monday, October 14 is Todd Bishop. He’s a member of our News Hall of Fame and one of the founders of GeekWire.

Todd is going to discuss:

  • His career path from writing for The Orion to founding a startup company.
  • How he made the decision to create GeekWire and the process by which the company came to life.
  • The pros and cons of being an entrepreneur.

He’s also going to be taking questions — start contemplating all those questions you have about business models and generating revenue, growing a startup company’s market, leveraging your skills on the job-hunt trail, etc.

Following Todd’s visit we’ll also discuss our midterm and the marketing section of your business plan assignment.
