[Food & Drinks Included]

Hosted by: Retention Science

Get ready for an awesome night of food, drinks and learning with Retention Science, our clients and other top brands from around LA!

ReSci's "Thought Leadership Series" hosts influential entrepreneurs, successful advisors and investors within our network to come in and share their stories with you.


This is an exclusive invitation to join us on Monday, May 8 at 5pm at ReSci HQ.

Cody Simms, the Executive Director of Techstars entire accelerator program will be joining us!
To give you an idea of *how big of a deal this is*...

Several "tiny" companies like SendGrid, Uber, ClassPass, and Twilio have come out of Techstars... it's one of the largest and most prolific accelerators in San Francisco- and Cody is behind much of Techstars success.

Have you ever wanted to...

  • Start your own company?
  • Find out how the best-of-the-best grow their companies?
  • Get the secrets top marketers use to crush their business goals?
  • Learn how large investors decide on which company to back?

... then this is a great opportunity to hear from an innovator who has helped and advised many in all of these areas!

You will hear from Cody about the Up's and Down's of a startup's journey. You will learn practical tips and advice he's come across throughout his career.

At the end, you will be able to ask questions of your own and meet Cody (over snacks & drinks!)

...For example, "How did he evolve from a Product Manager at Yahoo! to Chief Product Officer of StumbleUpon to working with Techstars?"

Go ahead and RSVP right now while it's on your mind. We'll save you a seat...
