9:30AM - 10:30AM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Room 400-402
500 E 4th St

Trilogy alumni played key early roles in many companies, from Google to WP Engine and many in between. FounderDating found Trilogy's alumni to be third on the list of Top 10 Entrepreneurial Company Alumni Networks. At a recent Trilogy alumni gathering, forty-three owned or founded businesses. This outsized impact is a direct result of Trilogy’s approach to talent. Trilogy’s focus on Only the Best instilled the desire to push harder and go farther.

Come to our session to engage in discussion about how your company or your community can apply lessons from Trilogy to grow your talent base, inspire entrepreneurial thinking, and take advantage of local unfair advantages. Trilogy alumni have played key roles in every significant software company in Austin in the 2000s. Learn how the lessons from Trilogy and Austin can be applied to other companies and cities and see how a killer alumni network can transform your economy.
