Surprise + Delight: Disruption and Technology in Flowers, Films, & Small Businesses

Saturday, March 12
1:00PM - 2:00PM

Building a small business is hard, but building one that takes everyday experiences – like ordering flowers or going to the movies – and makes them new again requires passionate problem solving: disrupting convention with creativity, ingenuity, and elbow grease. Christina Stembel of Farmgirl Flowers, John Smith of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, and Greg McAllister of Capital One discuss how social media and mobile technology have helped them break new ground in otherwise traditional industries. Facebook VP and Austin native Blake Chandlee moderates in what promises to be an insightful and lively discussion about perseverance, innovation, and bucking conventional wisdom.
