Upcoming Workshop: Building a Web App Business on June 16

May 6, 2009


As many of you may recall, our courageous leader, Mike McDerment, led a workshop a few weeks ago called How to Build a Web App Business at none other than our very own headquarters! This was the first time we had visitors since moving into our new home a couple months ago, and we were dying to show off the new digs. Folks interested in building their own web app business travelled all the way from Washington D.C., Chicago, Saskatoon, Ottawa and of course, Toronto and the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

Now, before I tell you about all the great stuff entrepreneurs from across Canada and the United States learned and before I show you how much fun we all had, let me take this moment to make an announcement:

We’re holding another workshop!

That’s right, folks. How to Build a Web App Business the sequel, the rerun, Electric Boogaloo or whatever suffix suffices will be held on Tuesday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Seating is limited to 40 people and the cost is $100 per person. We’ll even make sure you don’t leave hungry or beer-less. Register now!

Mike will address many of the questions you have as entrepreneurs through topics such as:

Building – your web app, your company, your team
Marketing – with and without dollars
Product management – so you know what’s right to build
Metrics – to track your progress
Financing – the who, what, when, where, why and how 5Ws of fund raising

There’s a guaranteed a spot for any out of towners (well, outside Ontario-ers) who want to attend.

You know you want to be here! Just check out what Katherine Regnier of 24hrAssistant had to say about her day at our last workshop:

Thank you for a brilliant workshop. Mike shared some amazing and critical information about How to Build a Web App. Also, the staff was awesome and so friendly. I wouldn’t think twice about attending any FreshBooks event.

After the event, Matt Rintoul from Say Yeah! tweeted:

#freshbooksworkshop was great! @mikemcderment gave an engaging talk on starting a web app co. Met some great peeps, and saw @rlangdon too!
