Arch team to speak Thursday at Cornstalks
The team of four behind Arch (left), a mobile app that allows users to request media or information from other users, will speak Thursday at Cornstalks, a monthly forum for individuals interested in high-growth entrepreneurship.
Though currently in private beta, Arch has showcased its potential on its website, archcrowd.com, and in a pomotional video (below). The idea is to allow users to request media or information from other users throughout the world. Want to find out what's happening in downtown Chicago? Ask Arch, the video encourages. Or looking for an answer about what's offered at the local farmer's market? Ask Arch.
Cornstalks is hosted by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce and – new location this month – held at the Silicon Prairie News office (1111 North 13th Street, Suite 208). The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with networking over complimentary drinks and snacks. At 7:30, the Arch team will begin its presentation. The event is free and open to the public.
