SXSW 2020

Creating Something Big, Somewhere Small

Imagine the most extraordinary tech hub you can think of — the place where you want to build the next great SaaS company. Now remove a few things. First, limit access to industry leaders — anyone you follow on Twitter as a leader in the field is two plane rides away to meet in person. Now, take away the competitive talent pool. In fact, take away a talent pool that has any experience with the kind of product you’re building. Now, take access to investment capital and reduce it by about 75%. Hello, you’re in Omaha, Nebraska!

Karen Borchert, COO of Flywheel, will highlight the different ways entrepreneurs can make big things happen in non-traditional places.
