About this event

Join us for a Fireside Chat with Dan Shapiro, CEO of Robot Turtles, LLC, a company created when he accidentally launched the best-selling board game in Kickstarter history. Robot Turtles sneakily teaches programming fundamentals to kids aged 3+.

Dan was previously a manager with Microsoft, Wildseed, and RealNetworks before founding two of his own companies, one of which was acquired by Google. In addition to being published in the Washington Post, Wireless Week, and the Seattle PI, Dan is a frequent speaker at conferences and events. He serves on the board of the Washington Technology Industry Association, and he is a mentor for the Founder's Institute, 500 Startups, and Techstars. He has been awarded eleven US patents, and received his B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College.

Come enjoy free snacks and beer as Dan shares with us his experience as an entrepreneur!
