The key to starting a company is getting the right advice
Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) August 09, 2012 - Johnny Monsarrat, MIT alumnus and one of the dotcom era's notable CEOs, is back in the entrepreneur game. His last company Turbine, was bought for $160 million after making online videogames. Now, he wants to transform business networking from an occasional experience to an everyday one for entrepreneurs.
"The key to starting a company is getting the right advice," Johnny Monsarrat said, "but networking is time-consuming. You need to find the right event for you, not stumble around in the dark. For the first time, there's a calendar of high-tech and business networking events that's large enough that you can have your pick and be as active as you want to be. That's the road to success."
Johnny Monsarrat is now the CEO of Hard Data Factory, a new business that already runs the largest calendar of business events in New England. Events INSIDER Tech, a free mobile app for the iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android, is available at http://harddatafactory.com/m/. Now, with the release of Version 2 in September, Johnny Monsarrat will break all records by going nationwide. It's made possible through a new, doubly-patented technology that lets computers read websites with the accuracy of humans in certain categories such as event listings. "The Internet is a vast resource," Johnny Monsarrat said, but for the most part it can only be read by humans. We've changed that equation in the events space. Our system reads 3,000 website calendars every day, automatically and precisely. It's the future."
