Description

Scientist & artist Guy Story sings the Blues of startups' founders in the "humanities" business. April 16, 2014 at Montclair State University, New Jersey. "Not just for techies" was the event, organized by Teresa Fiore, professor at The Theresa and Lawrence R. Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies, and by Dennis Bone, the director of the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship. The panel discussants were, besides myself and Guy Story - who is the Chief Scientist at Audible.com - Claudio Vaccarella, CEO of HyperTV and Alessandro Piol, venture capitalist with Vedanta Capital and the co-author with me of the book "Tech and the City - The Making of New York's Startup Community". The theme of the discussion: "Humanities and language studies can also be the spark for a startup, especially in New Jersey and New York City". We explored the intersection of languages, technology and entrepreneurship.
