How To Build A Million Dollar Site With Chris Broadway

May 24, 2013, – 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, WeWork Labs, 175 Varick Street, New York, NY 10014

Our May Meetup will consist of a 40 minute talk followed by a 20 minute Q&A with Chris “Broadway” Romero, who was previously the Co-Founder of Thisis50.com. We are always picking Broadway’s brain about making moves in the Hip Hop world. After creating Thisis50.com, Broadway has been able to work with some of Hip Hop’s biggest names in different capacities, but makes his mark on the creative and visual side of things. That video you like, chances are Broadway had something to do with it.

Besides being your favorite rapper’s go to technology guy, Broadway is a serial entrepreneur. He has served as an adviser to many startups in the Music Technology world and is always looking for a way to add value and put a dent in our world. When not working on BWAY Creative or taking on clients, Broadway is busy working as a VP at 212 Decibels as he builds out the future of Music Discovery.
