You have a great idea, but what do you do next? How do you take that inspiration and turn it into something? Moving from ideas to action is what separates entrepreneurs from those with just a dream.

Shane Green, whom we spoke with previously at South by Southwest, joined us in Washington, D.C. for the kickoff of our monthly Sessions speaker series. He took the audience through his story of how a trip to Berlin sparked his life mission and took him on a couple of startup adventures.  He sold his last startup to NAVTEQ and he is currentlyy the CEO and Co-Founder of Personal based in Washington, D.C. and shared how he took his idea and turned it into action. Watch the full keynote by Shane Green, CEO and Co-Founder of Personal.

Join us at Tech Cocktail Sessions as we break down the different ingredients that go into starting and running your own business (check our schedule). Our next event on May 24th features  Scott Case, Founding CTO of and current CEO of Startup America and Rohit Bhargava, Author of the new book LIKEONOMICS.
