Overview: Every startup leader has that "first time he or she managed a business and not just a project." Running a company requires you to quickly learn many new skills. Where do you start? What signposts mean you're doing it right or veering off track? This fast-paced session will cover the most critical issues that face newly-minted leaders: managing money, key people issues, and keys to finishing what you start. Don Daglow is a 3-time Inc. 500 CEO with a Technical Emmy, and advises game developers and publishers around the world as well as indie startup teams at Founders Space in San Francisco.
