Keynote speaker: Johnny Monsarrat

Johnny Monsarrat's first company sold for $160 million. He was founder and CEO of Turbine, Inc., which got talent scouted by Microsoft and bought by Warner Brothers. Turbine pioneered online videogames with Lord of the Rings Online, and Dungeons & Dragons Online. Now his new company, Hard Data Factory, is building the world’s largest calendar of arts events like concerts and festivals. It is based in the Boston Globe building and already powers their entrepreneur calendar.

He's got a lot to say about how to match your ideas to VIP customers with the power to pay for development so you don’t need investors, and talent scout you to the next level, so your growth is powerful, not incremental. Johnny has an MIT BA and MBA, studied at Brown and Harvard, and is an award-winning public speaker.
