Brewster founder, Trunk Club CEO join growing Thinc Iowa lineup
More than a dozen speakers will take the stage at Thinc Iowa 2012, October 9-11.
Today, we're adding two skilled entrepreneurs to our Thinc Iowa lineup who will share their story, provide guidance and lend pointers to give attendees perspective with what they're working on. At Thinc Iowa Oct. 9-11, we're spinning a web of support for hustlers, entrepreneurs, investors and doers while provoking the motivation to continue building. That's the foreground we hope to create and that's what our speakers set out to do. Please help us welcome Steve Greenwood, founder and CEO of Brewster, and Brian Spaly, CEO of Trunk Club, to Thinc Iowa.
In developing Brewster, the personalized address book that aggregates contacts from social networks, Steve Greenwood connects two of perhaps the strongest elements of conference – the relationship building and innovation. Through his experience as founder and CEO, he's translated these elements into this useful social tool and will share with us a story to match. Greenwood's history working with drop.io (completed deal with Facebook), McKinsey & Co. and Maveron Venture Capital demonstrates his diverse level to connect with Thinc Iowa attendees.
Brian Spaly, CEO of Trunk Club, will make you look fly in more ways than one. The Chicago-based Trunk Club is Spaly's second venture-backed fashion startup and one that seeks to solve a simple problem: selling style to guys who hate shopping. The company pairs customers with an online personal stylist who packs a "trunk" with higher-end casual wear, ships it to their home and through Skype, helps evaluate the fit from their living room. Since Spaly came on board, the company has grown from three to 90 employees with more than $13 million raised in venture capital funding.
