The Education of A Founder: CourseHorse's Katie Kapler & Nihal Parthasarathi
Monday, September 16th from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
After winning NYU's Business Plan competition, CourseHorse's co-founder Katie Kapler joked that "she had three jobs at the same time: a full-time entrepreneur, a part-time worker, and a full-time contestant." Life as a founder is a schizophrenic tsunami of to-do's and responsibilities. When you don't have enough money, time or employees how do you evaluate:
Which features to build?
How to spend your tiny marketing budget?
Whether to outsource or hire key roles?
Learn how Katie and co-founder Nihal Parthasarathi made these hard choices en route to building CourseHorse into an education platform that hosts 20,000 classes monthly.
