Startup Lessons Learned: From Idea To Exit

A session at Code & Creativity presents... Natalie Downe & George Bairaktaris

Tuesday 6th October, 2015

7:00pm to 8:00pm (EST)

Natalie launched the first version of Lanyrd.com with a co-founder and her husband Simon, while on honeymoon in Casablanca. As the site took off, they realized their side project was destined to become something much bigger.

This talk will tell the story of Lanyrd from a two-week proof of concept to a fully-fledged startup, the lessons learned along the way about building and launching a product, running a company, raising investment and the entrepreneurship journey. This is the talk she wished she heard before getting started!

Natalie Downe co-founded Lanyrd, a YCombinator backed startup (W11) that helps companies and individuals get more out of conferences and professional events. She is an experienced product designer, product manager and front-end web engineer. Lanyrd was acquired by Eventbrite in August 2013 and she is now the Director of Frontend Engineering at Eventbrite.
