Event Details

As the surge in digital marketing strengthened, serial entrepreneur, Larry Kavanagh saw an opportunity where no one else did. For most of his career, Larry had been deeply entrenched in direct marketing and could see how cross channel marketing influenced response. He saw specifically how direct mail influenced digital marketing by noticing the spikes in site traffic whenever a direct mail piece was mailed. So, he flipped the “typical” retargeting model on its head and used site traffic to positively influence direct mail. Larry, Efrain Allen and Tom created a technology which identifies website browsers, matches them to postal address and retargets to them via direct mail within 24 hours. Although unique, NaviStone is not Larry’s first successful technology start-up! Join Larry as he discusses the five key lessons he has learned in bringing new technology to market as a multiple time software entrepreneur.


Larry Kavanagh is a co-founder of NaviStone and serves as its chief executive officer. In addition to fundraising, Larry is responsible for overseeing the development of big ideas, creating big relationships and solving big problems.


Larry is a serial entrepreneur, and has overseen several successful startups, including DiMinSite, an e-commerce platform company that made the Inc. 400 list in 2005. He has been a featured speaker at, e-Tails, Direct Marketing Association, National Etailing and Mailing Organization of America and the CohereOne summit. His work has been recognized through awards from Inc. 500, John Barrett Entrepreneurship and the Cincinnati Business Courier.


eKickStart is an interactive program with a technology and innovation emphasis. This program is designed to connect business owners with experts who address some of the most pertinent issues that start-ups and early-stage companies face today.


eKickStart brings together experts and thought leaders from the region to share their experiences and lessons learned with startup and early-stage business owners in a one-hour session over breakfast.


eKickStart is co-sponsored by the Queen City Angels, and is held on the second Friday of each month (except summer) at the HCDC Business Center, 1776 Mentor Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45212, from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m., with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m.
