Utah Entrepreneurs: Don’t Miss This Free Lecture Series

Josh Coates is one of the most talented and energetic entrepreneurs/engineers I have ever met. I had the pleasure of serving on his advisory board at Mozy.com for a brief period as he was first launching his company. He outgrew my very part time services very quickly and I watched him build a very exciting company and sell it for a very large sum in a very short period of time. Very, very cool.


I blogged about Josh and Mozy back in April 2006 when they were still in beta mode but had already received 4 stars from PC Magazine. 


Now, Josh Coates is provide 6 weeks of free public lectures for entrepreneurs, but you have to register to attend.


Highly recommended!

  1. Does anyone know if Josh is planning to run this lecture series again? I just came across this post, and it looks like I’m a month too late. I’d like to attend if the series is going to be available again.
    Thanks,
    Richard
