How to Start A Successful Community Among Giants

Tuesday, March 17
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon D
500 E 4th St


When starting an online venture from scratch, building a community is essential to your success. With so many giants and established players on the app store, it’s extremely difficult to get noticed.

Community is a term that gets tossed around quite a bit, but at its core, community drives the future potential of what you’re building. Seeking out those who truly believe in what you’re doing is the best time you can spend early on. Too many times app developers are focused on building the most gorgeous product, forgetting who their potential audience might be.

Hear how to stand out in the crowd, letting a community amplify your company culture.
