About this event

Join us Thursday, March 24th for #Founder Forum Episode 2! 

Each founder is prepared to discuss their unique experiences - successes, failures, discoveries, and more. We encourage entrepreneurs at all stages to attend this event. From sharing knowledge, networks, or resources, Founder Forum events are a great place to connect the dots.

Founder Panel:

Patrick Gallagher, GridPane

"I’m the co-founder and CEO of GridPane.com, a SaaS hosting solution built for serious WordPress professionals. We currently help thousands of people, in over 100 countries, power over 100,000 WordPress websites, in over 50 data centers all around the globe.

We've raised very little money - just a handful of angel checks - we're funded almost entirely by our customers, all of whom have to come us from outstanding word-of-mouth. We're very small fish in a very big pond... but we regularly piss off all of the whales and sharks.

More importantly than all of that: I'm a father to three amazing daughters, a husband to a brilliant wife, I've constantly got my head in a book, and I can keep a round of golf in a respectable two-digit range."

Thomas Coke, Entrepreneur In Residence GVSU

"I'm a branding geek, startup veteran and attorney, most known as a former securities regulator serving as a go-to source for crowdfunding under the federal, state and non-securities models and how small businesses and brands use it to raise capital."

Undra Brown, All Mobile Things

Entrepreneur and political strategist. "Strong entrepreneurial professional pursing change for the greater good."

Host - Reuben Levinsohn, Washington Avenue Ventures
