Memphis may not be used to being in the spotlight, but the city has received its fair share of attention over the past several months, due in large part to the efforts of LaunchMemphis and their partners. The latest TechFuel event, that took place in the Launchpad of the Emerge Memphis building, was just the most recent of those efforts.
C.C. Chapman and Adrian Ho, two of the top thought leaders in the online community, joined us to share their passion about Social Media and the new climate of “online marketing”. Both men gave insightful presentations that went far beyond the tools and how-to of Social Media. They also allowed for exhaustive Q&A in which great questions were met with equally strong answers. The real value, as always, was in the conversation.
A great turnout to the event translated into a valuable forum for networking, brainstorming, sharing ideas and meeting the movers and shakers of the Memphis community. C.C. and Adrian stuck around through the late evening hours, and tirelessly conversed with Memphis’ entrepeneurs.
Check out the Commercial Appeal coverage of the event.
Next for LaunchMemphis is the 2nd Startup Weekend in Memphis. A wide range of thinkers and creators will be needed to band together in an ambitious attempt to launch a new startup in just one weekend.
