Startup Grind Atlanta welcomes Chris Turner, founder and former CEO of Tenrocket.com
For the past three years, Chris Turner has been running Tenrocket, a startup building apps for startups in 10 days for $10k. After overseeing the development of more than 50 apps without hiring a single employee, Chris and his co-founder did some soul searching and realized Tenrocket was really about helping people become entrepreneurs. After figuring that out, they asked themselves the next logical question: do other people struggle with becoming who they want to be? The answer, of course, was yes, so they sold Tenrocket to focus on solving the bigger problem. With one exit under his belt and his second company well on its way, come hear Chris share some of the trials and tribulations of starting from scratch.
After the fireside chat, join the Startup Grind community for a networking happy hour at one of the newest co-working spaces in Atlanta at WeWork, Midtown. You never know who may be your next new client, new contact or new partner.
