Our Next Workshop – Your City? Vote!

July 15, 2009

Due to the success of our How to Build a Web App Business workshop, and overwhelming demand to take the show on the road, we’re doing just that.

And before we ask for your help, we wanted to show you an overview of the workshop and some feedback from some of our workshop participants:

Here’s where we need your help! We want YOU to tell us where we should bring our workshop. Please cast your vote below and let us know what you think:

Our second How to Build a Web App Business workshop was held June 16 at FreshBooks’ HQ. Mike walked a group of budding entrepreneurs through his journey building FreshBooks – including topics such as Building Your Team, Marketing Your Product and the 5Ws of Fund Raising.

The response we’ve received from announcing and running these workshops has been amazing. Folks travelled to our Toronto head quarters all the way from Nashville, Raleigh, Washington D.C., Winnipeg, Montreal and Ottawa to join some local entrepreneurs – all interested in building their own web app businesses.

And we’ve definitely taken note of how many of you want us to pay your city a visit to run our workshop there.

We think the workshops have been pretty great, but don’t just take our word for it! Check out what some of our attendees have said:

Matt Read from KarmaCake dropped us the following note:

Just wanted to say that I had a blast during the event and I left definitely feeling more confident about my understanding of the different aspects that go into building a web app. Obviously there’s a ton of work that needs to go into a project to make it successful so it was great hearing advice from the CEO of a company that I really respect and whose product is loved by tons of its users.

Martin Traub-Werner of Raybec Communications said:

I’ve gone through my notes repeatedly over the last couple of weeks and continue to find gems. I appreciate that Mike seems genuinely interested in people’s success and so willingly gave of his time and ideas. I would (and have) recommended this session to anyone who wants to spend some time thinking about their business in a framework that’s already proven successful.

See you on the road!

Note: The workshop will not be live streamed or posted as a video online. We really want to see all you beauts in person! : )
