Using technology to transform an industry (Facebook Live chat)

Dell Facebook Live

Many small businesses that exist today could not have existed 10 years ago. Why? Technology. Whether we’re talking about the limitations of technology or the speed of which users adopt technology, it’s clear that advancements in technology today are allowing us to think bigger than ever before.

Today’s startups are using technology to disrupt entire industries. But, how do founders integrate technology into their companies? When is the right time? And if a founder is not technical, how do they start, build, and raise money?

We’ve teamed up with Dell to answer some of these questions. As part of our Small Business Series powered by Dell, BetaKit spoke with leaders from Furnishr and Willful about their experience starting a business and how their solutions are disrupting an industry.

Join us on Thursday, October 24 for a BetaKit Facebook live chat, where Karen Lau of Furnishr and Kevin Oulds of Willful will share the benefits and challenges of using technology in their businesses.
