David was also the founder and CEO of earFeeder.com, a music service which was sold to SonicSwap.com in 2006. He also had what he likes to think of as a “graceful failure” in between.

He is also very active at the University of Colorado, serving as a member of the Board of Advisors of the Computer Science Department, the Entrepreneurial Advisory Board at Silicon Flatirons, and the Board of Advisors of the Deming Center Venture Fund.

William Mougayar, founder of Startup Management will interview David on stage, and there will be a Q&A period with the audience. We will talk about tech startups, startup accelerators, growing and scaling your startup, the current funding environment, how to get a follow-on investment from VCs, what makes an exceptional entrepreneur, the Techstars program, and anything you’ll be asking him. This will be a high-caliber event, not to be missed by any one involved in a tech startup or tech ecosystem.
