Lampe to present Dwolla’s marketing strategy at AMA luncheon Wednesday

Des Moines May 30, 2012 by Danny Schreiber

From landing a story on TechCrunch to recognition by Fast Company, Dwolla press mentions have been a constant since the company launched nationally in 2010. Behind the scenes orchestrating Dwolla's media and marketing strategy has been Jordan Lampe, the company's chief communications builder.

On Wednesday, Lampe (left) will be the featured speaker at the Iowa chapter of the American Marketing Association's monthly luncheon. His presentation will cover Dwolla's marketing strategy, as well as the company's culture and product.

Though AMA luncheons aren't typically in our wheelhouse of event announcements, this one should provide value to startups looking to pitch the media or market a new product.
