I have worked in business for over 30 years. I have held management positions in companies providing services with as diverse a range as health care to gaming and ranging in size from startups to Fortune 500 companies. For the past 15 years I have been focused on the technology market and I am currently the Director of Business Development for The Powell Group Consulting firm.
Our guest speaker will be Jon Kuperman, Founder and CEO of Insite Design Lab and software engineer at Barracuda Networks. Jon will speak about the state of the technology community in Ann Arbor, the challenges of starting your own business and the opportunities that are out there today. Jon's special focus will be on how he has used the internet, including social media and groups, to help drive his business.
