LaunchMemphis Coaches Businesses at Boot Camp

February 9, 2009

Boot Camp AttendeesThe 2009 edition of LaunchMemphis’ Boot Camp found itself bringing in a large crowd of burgeoning business developers, and filling every seat in the house.  A group of 35 Memphis entrepreneurs came together at Emerge Memphis, in downtown, to get expert advice and training on how to initiate or improve their new business.

Boot Camp is an intense, two-session course in entrepreneurship, in which professionals offer advice on all aspects of starting, successfully running, and gaining funding for a new venture.  LaunchMemphis put on their first BootCamp in 2008, and brought it back early this year due to popular demand, and thanks to a sponsorship by First Tennessee Bank.

LunaWeb President and LaunchMemphis Co-Founder, Dave Barger, had the opportunity to share a presentation about how to get the most out of your online presence and marketing plan.

The next session, a week later, was an advanced course that featured more focused advice from experts in business related fields.  Enriching Your Business Plan, allowed entrepreneurs to hone their ideas and methods, and receive strong guidance on how to fine tune their approach, and maximize their potential.

Presenters for the second session included:

Chris Allen, Director of Marketing, Mercury Launchpad
Dave Barger, President, LunaWeb
Shelly J. Parkinson, CPA
Harry Brown, Attorney at Law
Spencer Dillard, Spencer Dillard Consulting
Eric Mathews, Co-Founder Mercury Technology Labs, LLC
Lori Turner, founder of Red Rover, a Sales and Marketing Strategy Firm

  1. What a spectacular post! I did a sort of blogging for dummies over on one of the CPA Marketing forums and I considered it was too simple for them, but the sum of emails I got asking questions just like what you addressed was unbelievable. As young people nowadays we have grown up with computers, but it’s easy to forget that even individuals just a a couple of years older have not! Really good post! 🙂
