Chuck Templeton



Illinois Senator Napoleon Harris, owner of Beggars Pizza and former NFL linebacker, who will welcome the crowd and Chuck Templeton, Founder of OpenTables.com, who will kick off the program as the Keynote Speaker at our SBAC Now Venture Pitch Session. Peter Kennedy with Quality Flow Inc will share his positive experiences with the program and pitch presenters include:

ReaLync: a web andmobile platform that enables real-time virtual tours of properties ("ReaLyncs") between agents and clients. ReaLync is building an experience that will forever change the way you shop for and show real estate.

BrokerSavant:  Founded in 2009 by Claiborne (Clay) Rankin with the idea that local commercial brokers need to get their property information online for site selectors without distracting them from their other duties. As a commercial broker himself, Clay was frustrated by the amount of extra work needed to promote properties online and needed an affordable, well-designed platform that took the needs of small organizations seriously. Since there wasn’t one available, he decided to build it himself and BrokerSavant was born.

occasion: Occasion offers simple online booking on one page, contributing to increased conversions and loyalty and reduced calls and no-shows.

Compatability: When co-founders Andrea Yusim Meltzer and Dr. Kim Rubenstein discovered that colleges and universities that devote more resources to first-year student engagement have far better retention rates, they leveraged their combined experience and developed a tool to promote compatibility among freshman roommates-and then parlayed that success to create similar offerings for peers, mentors and school-sponsored clubs and organizations.
