From funding and product to ethics and culture, design is key to sustainable companies. Find out how--and why--during this event with Cat Noone and Benedikt Lehnert, experts in design. Set in a fireside chat format, the discussion with Cat and Ben will be moderated by Tyrone Ross. (Bios below.) Ben had a successful exit, selling Wunderlist to Microsoft, but he and Cat want everyone to know there was a lot of learning (which they will share!) during the journey from failed startups to acquisitions. Cat and Ben will also talk about how to balance personal and professional when immersed in the world of startups. Plus, both Cat and Ben are just really cool people, so this promises to be an informative and entertaining discussion, led by Tyrone! Event is free and open to the public. Join the conversation on social media with #MSUmeetup. Event is presented by the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship and the PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies, both at Montclair State.
