Lessons in startup from a tech entrepreneur

From several startup technology companies to his latest venture being acquired, Beaufort Digital Corridor Chair Kevin Klingler shares his experience and advice with University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB) Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) students as an enhancement to their curriculum.

The presentation is a two-part evening series with the first seminar being held on January 15, 2019 at USCB's Bluffton Campus focusing on "The Elements of a Technology Startup". This first lecture will outline all the essential aspects needed to launch a technology startup. The second seminar will take place January 22nd at the Beaufort Digital Corridor's BASEcamp facility in downtown Beaufort and addresses the "Critical Success Factors for Building a Successful Business or Life". This lecture includes a sure-fire success formula - it's not easy or fast - but it works. Events open to the public for $12 per talk, RSVP required - limited seating.

ACM is widely known for being the most substantial organization in the computing society. The USC Beaufort ACM Chapter promotes the engagement of educational gatherings for the community, motivating students to network and acquire real-world experience. The partnership with the Digital Corridor is crucial to connecting the students with professionals as well as educating and mentoring the students with the possibility of starting up their own companies.

Ronald Erdei, PhD and Assistant Professor of Computational Science, is the ACM Professional Member at USCB. Dr. Erdei and Chairman Klingler are working closely to make this a mutually beneficial program for the students and professional community.
