Alpha Loft's Founders Series gives attendees the opportunity to learn from the experience of others. Each event will feature startup founders who’ve been on the startup journey. You’ll hear about their journey through the craziness that is founding a startup, including how they worked through obstacles, what milestones they achieved, how they caught their big break, and lessons learned along the way. The Alpha Loft team will moderate the conversation and then open things up for questions from the audience.
