Urban Engine Presents: 32/10 Speaker Series with Matt Landers, Founder of Covalence and Platypi
The Urban Community Newsletter is a monthly newsletter that features startup stories with Startup of the Month, massive professional development experiences with Humanoids of Huntsville, and a dynamic showcase of our greater impact in other hyper-local communities to reflect the innovation movement and startup growth ecosystem that fuels the Urban Engine economy.
The Urban Engine team loves this question.
We rarely hear the same answer twice.
After asking hundreds of people how they ended up at Urban Engine we began to realize the dynamic impact our work has on the communities we serve. So, we started to capture the stories of people in our networks and the unique ways our programs and resources have made a difference in their entrepreneurial journey. Thus, The Collective Ambition was born.
The Collective Ambition™ is Urban Engine’s central hub of impact stories. It is our collection of the notable people and ideas that inspire us to spark, fuel and ignite the next generation of visionaries through our community programming. You will find features of founders and their startup stories with a focus on how their professional developments make an impact in their local cities. Experience the waves of transformation these motivational influencers have stormed through their hard work.
Andy Smith and Stephen Blankenship cofounded Daily Burn (previously called Gyminee) in 2007 in Huntsville, Alabama. The pair took the fitness technology company through BizTech, a startup incubator, in Huntsville, before being accepted into TechStars Boulder in 2008. The pair later sold Daily Burn to conglomerate IAC in 2010. The company has been based in New York City since.
The Collective Ambition is made possible through the talent and time of Urban Engine’s content team. Fire off your message to Emily, Dustin, and Michael by clicking the button below.
