San Francisco Game Developer’s Workshop and Holiday Party

Winter is here, storms are everywhere... but that won’t stop the Yetis from partying! In fact, Yetis know how to stay warm... drinking beer!

This December 13th we are having a San Francisco Game Developer’s Workshop and holiday party combined!

Starting from Zero: Key Lessons in Building a Startup
Aside from having frosty drinks, mind blowing networking time, and thumpy music, we are also proud to have our YetiZen Accelerator mentor Mark Rose as a speaker. Mark co-founded Spare Change - the first and largest micropayment solution for social which later exited to Playspan and then exited again to Visa.

He will talk about his journey of ideation, building a company from absolute zero to two successful acquisitions, and all the places where the company could and probably should have failed yet managed to survive. Mark will share a wealth of really helpful tips, mistakes, and humorous anecdotes.

So, join us on Thursday,December 13th at 6PM at the YetiZen Innovation Lab for another night of valuable networking and learning! Register for your ticket today!
