                                                                                                              Resource Li

                l   What is the process flow of building an app? It involves work flow screens,
                approval, coding and then submission.

                l   Can you target your audience via an app? Yes. The audience can be educated via
                the website and app store description sections to attract the core users .

                l   How long is the approval process of an app at Apple? Currently the timeframe is
                about 3 weeks.

                l   Can Facebook app be designed to generate biz? Yes. 1800 Flowers is a great
                example that is now selling their entire inventory on the app.

                The quality and amount of information shared at the event was astounding. Among
                the valuable lessons encrypted into my memory were:

                l   How to be a millionaire: How to build an iphone app and publish it to the Apple

                l   Everything you need to know about intellectual property: Incorporating laws and

                l   Sales: is not just a profession, it is a skill set. You have to develop your ability to
influence and persuade.

l   Speed dating 101: You must be able to describe what you do and engage others
in three minutes.

l   The art of pitching: You must be able to present your company's value in less
than three minutes in a way that is simple enough for the audience to embrace and

l   Relationships are key: the importance of relationships over technology.

Start ups from a variety of industries attended, as well as a dynamic group of people
from all ethnicities and ages. The most valuable insight reinforced was the
importance of relationships. Tech fads come and go, but their innovators do not.
People want to work with others who listen, understand and care. Your ability to
communicate with others will undoubtedly determine the success of your business.

If you are a Houston area business professional or recent grad interested in
innovation and connecting with top notch professionals, we encourage you to attend
barcamp-style community gatherings--this is your opportunity to network with brilliant
minds and sharpen your ideas.
