Around 80 people attended a recent event hosted by West Chester University’s Edward Cottrell Entrepreneurial Leadership Center to hear the story of Bob Moore, the head of Magento Business Intelligence, writes Brian McCullough for the Daily Local News.
Moore was one of the founders of RJMetrics, the data analytics software startup that was bought by Magento last year. He described the ups and downs of creating and running a high-tech company in the Philadelphia area. The attendees also got the chance to network before and after the presentation.
More than 20 startup businesses were among the participants at the event that was sponsored by the Chester County Economic Development Council’s Ideas x Innovation Network, as well as WCU.
“We held this summer meetup to bring the Philly and the burbs’ startup communities together as a way to foster entrepreneurial growth in the region,” said Nancy Kunkle, i2n project director.
