The inaugural event of Startup Grind Frederick features an evening of fun networking, light refreshments, and a Fireside Chat with Scott Ryser.
Scott is the Founder and CEO of Yakabod, a leader in secure software development since 2001. His background includes designing, building and managing technology initiatives ranging from small pilot projects to enterprise overhauls. During the Fireside Chat, Scott will share his perspective on organizational change, revisiting strategy to remain competitive and compelling in a changing marketplace, building a company’s foundation on values to ensure a strong culture, and navigating the change from entrepreneur to leader.
Additionally, we'll hear from the founders of Lovely Canopies, creators of beautiful flowering gardens as patio umbrellas!

Scott Ryser is a technical guy with a head for business and an entrepreneurial spirit. While he’s now focused on Yakabod corporate strategy, culture and operations, his background includes designing, building and managing technology initiatives ranging from small pilot projects to enterprise overhauls. A "startup guy" at heart, with a passion to see his community prosper, Scott is also active in the Frederick tech and business community through various board roles, including TechFrederick, FITCI, and others. He holds an MSEE from The Johns Hopkins University and a BSEE from The University of Akron. When he’s not in Frederick, he’s probably out on some backcountry adventure, training for one, or plotting the feast he’ll have when he gets back.
