The Rock Weekly, August 15th
We took the creative energy from our new anatomically-inspired artwork, courtesy the talented Christina Gualy, into our Tuesday design session with Cooper, where the teams finally got to roll up their sleeves and put a few interfaces together.
Thursday it was business time, as Moss Adams laid out accounting basics for startups, including rule #1: always be organizing. Throughout the week our teams met with John Wilbanks of Creative Commons and the Kauffman Foundation, Dr. Eric Rose from Microsoft, Abhas Gutpta of MDV and Sonny Jandial from P&G.
