Our second featured presenter this month is Steve Greenwood:
Steve is the Founder and CEO of Brewster. Named after the street he grew up on, Brewster aims to reinvent the address book through an understanding of relationships. Previously, Steve worked at drop.io (completed deal with Facebook), McKinsey & Co., Maveron Venture Capital, Home Depot, and Goldman Sachs. Steve graduated with a BA in Economics from Bucknell University (Magna Cum Laude) and with an MBA in Entrepreneurship from the Harvard Business School.
Brewster is the address book that helps you stay in touch with who you know. We replace the A-Z contacts list with one that understands your relationships, helping you discover who you're losing touch with, who you should get to know better, who you should invite to the Knicks game, and so much more. Like magic, Brewster connects all the dots as your relationships evolve.
Our third featured presenter this month is Katie Palencsar:
Katie is the CEO and Founder of Unbound Concepts, the developers of knowledge-sharing tools, such as BookLeveler and the Unbound Concepts language engine, which applies human knowledge to digital content using computer science.
