Mountains and Start-ups: Don't die along the journey

Ben likes to pick a big objective and get after it. He pioneered the first backcountry skiing guidebook in the region (Backcountry Skiing Bozeman and Big Sky) and is the Founder and CEO of IgniteFeedback, a local cloud start-up focused on helping businesses gain better customer insights. His past roles include Development, UX, Product Management and Product Marketing.

The parallels between mountaineering and building start-ups run deeply. In this talk Ben will walk through these two vastly different yet striking similar contexts and share some photos. Risk, teams, decision making, hard work and self-doubt will be explored.
