We will discuss what has changed in the web and mobile development ecosystem and what we have learned working in the space for the last 10 years, focused on building solutions for large clients like NMAAHC, Red Cross, NAACP Image Awards, Queens Public Library and DC Health Link and working with smaller entrepreneurs with limited access to capital to get an initial Minimal Viable Product or Functional Prototype to demo to raise additional funds.
