Digital DUMBO Workshop Series - WE is Good for Business: Make $haring Profitable and Practical (incl. lunch)
Tuesday, May 24, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (EDT)
Special Note: The Digital DUMBO Workshop Series is new event programming from Digital DUMBO. This is not to be confused with our free monthly event!
Sharing's no longer just about having good manners. Collaboration within a community creates real savings and opportunities for partnership. Finding talent, space, and folks to defray cost of ownership or projects is getting easier every day. You need to learn how to harness this trend for your network and your business. Join DUMBO startups SnapGoods and Loosecubes for a discussion about what collaborative consumption means for your street cred and your bottom line.
Learn how to:
- Find talent and collaborators without leaving your office
- Do more with less - tackle projects at a lower cost
- Meet your local community (and make money) through sharing
Ron J. Williams, Co-Founder of SnapGoods
Campbell McKellar, Founder of Loosecubes

Digital DUMBO Workshop Series:
Our flagship monthly event has served as a platform for some of the hottest, most innovative companies in New York City to connect with a highly talented group of digital influencers and professionals.
The Digital DUMBO Workshop Series will be an extension of our marquee event, providing the community with an educational (not to be confused with boring) workshop series hosted by some of the same innovative companies that have helped shape what the Digital DUMBO community has become, but in a more focused setting. Workshops may cover any range of topics, and no idea is off limits.

About Digital DUMBO
Digital DUMBO was founded in January of 2009 to raise awareness and foster business for the local technology community. We do this through collaborative efforts with local organizations, companies and individuals to showcase local talent, educate the community, and facilitate idea exchange. The goal of our efforts is to drive future talent to the area, sustain business and solidify the community as a viable economic player in the New York Metro area.
SnapGoods is the safest and easiest way to connect people so that they can rent or borrow gear from within their network or neighborhood. SnapGoods is all about getting you hooked up. We want people to live smarter and more connected without the commitment to owning everything.
Loosecubes is a global workspace sharing community that connects entrepreneurs, independent workers and business travelers who need professional and flexible workspace with other members who have an empty desk or two.

Join us and our friends at TD Bank for a brief two part presentation exploring strategies to help businesses secure bridge loans and lines of credit, followed by advice on how to manage all that cash after you sell your company or cash out your stock. The presentations will be followed by audience Q/A, the opportunity to have private office hours with executives from TD Bank, and hang time with other entrepreneurs with beer, wine and music.
Data, connected devices, and wearables are quickly entering and influencing our daily lives. In our panel, Ready Set Rocket and Interbrand will explore the future of wearables and connected devices, and how thought leaders in the space are influencing the next big shift in culture and technology.
What do Cadillac, Hello Kitty, and the Greenbay Packers have in common? Well, not much other than that they all have mobile apps built on top of the Parse Cloud! Parse, acquired by Facebook in 2013, adds a scalable and powerful backend to mobile apps eliminating the need to worry about server maintenance. In this edition of dd:COLLECTIVE we'll not only talk about the nitty-gritty of app development but also explore strategies for leveraging the Facebook ad platform to grow user bases and take any app to the masses!
