Please join us for the an exciting, interesting & thought-provoking meeting of the HBS Club of Atlanta's Entrepreneur Special Interest Group

7:30AM-8AM NETWORKING  8AM-9AM SPEAKER  

Does Groupon's business model seem flawed to you?  Atlanta is home to a company with a unique approach to helping consumers save money, try out new businesses, and get to know their town.  Come hear the story of one of Atlanta's hottest start-ups.   How did it start?  How do they cut through the clutter?  What makes them different?  What have they learned?  Can lawyers and journalism majors build successful start-ups?  Discuss these topics and more.
