The LaunchCats Speaker Series is a multi-part exploration of the many forms entrepreneurship can take - from small, community-centered businesses to large-scale ventures intended to impact as many people as possible and everything in between. The entrepreneurs featured in this series are changing the world through business, and we invite you to come hear their amazing stories of both success and failure. We guarantee you'll walk away inspired.
Part 2: This talk is focused on indie tech and the guest entrepreneur, Justin Bigart, founder and CEO of Wisetail, hopes to inspire an alternative to VC-backed entrepreneurship.
This event is on Wednesday, February 22 from 4:30-5:30 pm in Jabs Hall 207 on the MSU campus.
The guest entrepreneur:
Montana-native Justin Bigart bucked the Silicon Valley tech startup culture by starting and building Wisetail as an #INDIETECH company in Bozeman, Montana without venture capital, dedicated to independence, profitability and rapid, self-funded growth. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) company powers great places to work with it’s next generation learning management system (LMS). Since launch in 2008, Wisetail has grown to 36 team members, 2 million users and has been recognized as one of the fastest growing AND best places to work in the country. Justin is passionate about inspiring #INDIETECH entrepreneurship, proving the value of being a great place to work and time spent moving through the mountains. He’s originally from Missoula, Montana, a graduate of the University of Montana and, prior to Wisetail, he wasted some time learning the hard way on the New York Stock Exchange and at Accenture in San Francisco.
