- 5/11 J.D. Hokoyama, Leadership Skills for Entrepreneurs
-5/15 Chee Chew, Justin Tomboulian, Build a successful startup team
-5/31 Dou Shen and Philip Lee, Build a Company and Get It Acquired
Our guest speakers Chee Chew, the Director of Google, and Justin Tomboulian, the Senior VP of Annik Technology delivered their stories and best practices on how to build a wonder team – one from the engineering aspect, another from the business aspect. The event was held on New York Life Conference Room (Thanks for the sponsorship!), and was full filled with people, the event was very well controlled in time, everything runs smoothly.
From the May 15th event, we introduced lightening talks and 5 members were presenting their ideas and products on the stage, this is a great opportunity for our members to practice the pitch and receive feedback from the others. We would expect to have this as a tradition for future SEC events.
Our May 31th event by local startup Buzzlabs founders team: Dou Shen and Philip Lee, about how to Build a Company and Get It Acquired was another big success, and the event get supported by Bellevue city, over 100 members registered and went to the event.
