About this event

Mike Knapp is the co-founder of Shoes of Prey - the ‘design your own shoe’ company that raised $25.5m from investors such as Khosla Ventures, Blue Sky, Blackbird and Nordstrom.

Mike headed up the software engineering team at Shoes of Prey and also spent three years in China overseeing the construction of the company’s multi-million dollar shoe factory. Today, Shoes of Prey continues to operate from their headquarters in Los Angeles. 

Prior to Shoes of Prey, Mike was a software engineer at Google and, prior to that, a lawyer. 

Earlier this year saw Knapp step down from his position to launch Mottle, a pseudo social networking and dating app.  Harnessing user information from Facebook, Mottle connects like-minded users together to have a phone conversation. Once the call is over, both participants are able to rate each other based on their experience.

Join us for our final event of 2017 and hear about Mike's startup experiences, the lessons learnt along the way and what it's like starting over.
