March tech meetup: “Launch 2019” with Wise Guy, Inboard, SellHound
February 19, 2019 — Santa Cruz, CA
In addition to “Wise Guy,” Inboard will launch Glide: the Tesla of e-scooters, and SellHound will launch their new app.
The keynote speaker for the March Santa Cruz New Tech Meetup is Guy Kawasaki who is launching his 15th book. Guy Kawasaki has been a fixture in the tech world since he was part of Apple’s original Macintosh team in the 1980s. He’s widely respected as a source of wisdom about entrepreneurship, venture capital, marketing, and business evangelism, which he’s shared in bestselling books such as The Art of the Start and Enchantment. But before all that, he was just a middle-class kid in Hawaii, a grandson of Japanese immigrants, who loved football and got a C+ in 9th grade English.
Wise Guy, his most personal book, is about his surprising journey. It’s not a traditional memoir but a series of vignettes. He toyed with calling it Miso Soup for the Soul, because these stories (like those in the Chicken Soup series) reflect a wide range of experiences that have enlightened and inspired him. “Wise Guy” books will be available for purchase and signing.
Doug Erickson, meetup founder, invites participants to take a survey about local issues.
