Event description

Description

Join us for our inaugural "Fiery Founders" event, where startup founders answer HOT questions about their entrepreneurial journey while eating even HOTTER wings!

We will have startup founders from both sides of the "startup valley of death" - those who are just starting out, and those who have successfully made it through a Series A financing or beyond. Hear about how they overcame their biggest challenges to make it through the "valley", fun stories from their fund raising journeys, anecdotes from their "we may not make it" moments, and much more!

All while trying to maintain *some* composure as they sample through our delicious, but progressively SPICIER AND SPICIER, wings!

Our host will be Andy Castonguay, who is not only a well recognized IOT industry and research analyst previously at Gartner, Machina and Yankee Group, but also an avid foodie!

Startups founders on the panel include:

- J.D. Margulici, CTO from Infinite Uptime (Industrial Machinery and Data Analytics Platform)
- Steven Banerjee, Founder of Mekonos (Genome Editing Technology)
- Chida Khatua, CEO of EquBot (AI-powered ETFs and Investments)
- Jessica Ho, Founder of Museum of Tomorrow (Climate Change Pop-Up Museum)
- Niels Rochet, Founder of Handrop (Employment Tech for Social/Homelessness Inclusion)
- Namrata Banerjee, Founder of Me-to-Her (Direct Impact Micro-donations Platform)
