From Startup to Standout: Seattle’s Kabir Shahani, Founder of Appature Inc.

No funding? No Problem! Want to learn how to grow your idea into a business?

Get your tickets to VEF Momentim: Connect to find out how Appature Inc’s CEO and Co-founder Kabir Shahani turned $4,000 and an idea into a profitable, multimillion dollar startup in under 2 years.

Named one of Business Week magazine’s Best Young Tech Entrepreneurs, Kabir founded Appature in 2007, and developed a wildly successful company whose products help Fortune 50 companies like Johnson & Johnson, and Microsoft measure and manage their marketing. In 2009, they raised their first round of outside funding - $3.5 million from Madrona Ventures and Ignition Partners - to help accelerate Appature’s growth.

Just like other VEF Momentum events, you can expect some great networking and food.  Come out to show your support for Vancouver entrepreneurs and get your ticket now before the event sells out.
