How I Built It: In Conversation with Ben Milne
Monday, March 16
12:30PM - 1:30PM
Hilton Austin Downtown
500 E 4th St
Ben Milne is among the most audacious, and most insightful entrepreneurs of the past decade. Dwolla, the company he founded in 2008, is bringing real-time payments to every business and consumer in the United States. They are systematically shaking up how money moves across the economy and as MIT reported last year, "emerging as a threat not only to the likes of PayPal but also venerable institutions such as Visa."
Ben is also the embodiment of Rise of the Rest: the belief that great ideas and great entrepreneurs can startup anywhere. Dwolla began and remains headquartered in Des Moines, IA where Ben has been a transformational figure in building the local startup ecosystem. He will reflect on the values that have underpinned Dwolla and the defining characteristics of great entrepreneurs.
