Then check out Catalog Spree and SVIC.
Catalog Spree: Joaquin Ruiz, CEO of Catalog Spree, will discuss “how to become an entrepreneur, and have fun doing it” this Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 6 p.m. in Washington Square Hall, Room 207.
Catalog Spree is the leading iPad and HTML5 catalog shopping experience. The company’s mission? Nothing less than “…defining the future of mobile shopping.”
Ruiz’s presentation is part of a fall lecture series put together by JMC graduate students in the new fall class, MCOM 215 – New Media Visionaries. The lecture series is dedicated to innovation, entrepreneurship, and how to bring an interactive product to market.
Kim Komenich, assistant professor – new media, who leads the class, notes that Ruiz’s LinkedIn profile says it all: “We’re Hiring!” (web developers and programmers, that is).
