Bootstrappers Breakfast is sponsoring a new local group for high-tech entrepreneurs. The Champaign Bootstrappers Breakfast group has early morning meetings on 4th Wednesday of the month.
The roundtable meetings are moderated by Eyal Amir and Jeremy Leval. They are excited to foster tech entrepreneurship by facilitating communication to share ideas and resources.
“I’m the Co-Founding CEO of FasPark (the street-parking app), and a professor of computer science at the university of Illinois. I love making technology that changes people’s lives. Looking forward to meeting all of you entrepreneurs that dream big,” said Eyal Amir.
