Panel: Starting Your Own Business

Next week I'll be sitting – and speaking! – on a panel at American University on starting your own business. There are a number of different startups and entrepreneurs on the panel representing a range of different stages of a startup. The main purpose is to expose American University students to the D.C.
startup community and also provide them with the opportunity for
internships and possible future jobs.

The best thing… the subtitle for the event is "Starting Your Own Business – The Trials & Tribulations".

As moderator, we have Robert Neelbauer ( who organized the event and invited me onto the panel.

The panel includes myself (WhyGoSolo and CaseySoftware), Nick O’Neill (, Victor Prince (, and potentially one other person.

Late Update: The highly esteemed Jeff Lee was the final addition to the panel. We worked together in the past – I reported to him indirectly and had an office next door – and in addition to being a good guy, he's the new President at Distributive Networks.
