Event description

Description

At some companies, tech can end up being mostly just plumbing for a business competing on positioning & marketing. But for others, superior technology can be a distinct competitive advantage. Novel software, algorithm-driven product, clever proprietary ways of collecting and processing data... for many founders and those aspiring, these are the kind of things that make a tech company worth the name.

We're bringing together experts & experienced engineering leaders from Boston's startup scene to share what they've learned about how to build these kinds of companies. Each speaker will give a 5 minute lightning talk presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A.

This will be a high-impact event for founders and tech/product leaders who want to make sure they have a real competitive advantage from the technical foundations of their startup.

We'll have some additional time after the talks for more questions from the audience for our entire set of speakers—a great opportunity to get multiple perspectives on how you're approaching your product's tech.

This event is part of the Building Products track at Startup Boston 2018.

Agenda:

3:55pm Show up, check-in

4:00pm Connect with other startup people and engineers.

4:20pm Lightning talks begin.

5:20pm Engineering Q&A: we'll bring our speakers together on stage, for questions about lessons learned their talks may not have covered, or ideas that you'd like more perspectives on.

5:40pm Networking & conversations through closing time.
