Family Ties :: Starting up from the kitchen table featuring Rob/Sherry Walling + Mickeli/Allison Bedore

by Mickeli Bedore | at Minnebar spring 2020 (canceled)

No, you are not alone. You have a dream, the drive AND a family.

Spend an hour with the Wallings & Bedore's as we share our unique challenges, struggles and eventual success of launching from the kitchen table.

Our shared goal is to enable everyone in attendance to comfortably share their fears, roadblocks, etc. with the hope you will leave inspired to go for it.

Our panel ::

Sherry + Rob Walling = The force behind Drip (acquired), Tiny Seed, Zen Founder, 2 NYT best sellers, & creators of MicroConf. Together this startup superstar and phd have created, invested in and inspired more startups than most could count on two hands... together while facing ALL of the challenges of raising kids.

Allison + Mickeli Bedore = Two creatives meet... both with comfy high paying jobs they quit to launch 4x startups, a couple of kids, coupled with a few wins that have been featured in national publications & won a handful of awards; in between 3 miscarriages, failure and every reason to give up.

Starting up is hard. Doing so with your best friend/etc. is incredible. Come share an hour with a few that have walked the walk you are/about to embarque on.

All levels
