Refresh Miami Presents: The Raw Truth a Startup Story by Brian Brackeen

February 26, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Raising too little money, running out of money, hiring the wrong sales people, hiring too soon, nurturing your great investors, dealing with your bad investors, hiring too late, Brian has iterated through his share of mistakes as a 1st time founder.


Brian will share the raw truth, unfiltered, on his journey, what keeps him awake at night, how startup impacts your family / relationships, etc etc. Nothing is off limits and come with your questions during Q&A session.
