The four person panel session will explore the unique experience of starting a business.

As Chief Technology Officer for Six Feet Up, Calvin is responsible for researching cutting-edge advances that could become part of the company’s technology road map. He is also President of the Plone Foundation.
They will be joined on the panel by Michael Langellier, the co-founder and CEO of MyJibe, and Ryan Cox, founder and CMO of StatSquared.
A generous question and answer period will follow the panel, where attendees can ask their questions of the participants.
