We're back to organising ArcticEvenings in 2012! We will start off our events in Tallinn, on the 1st of March. The theme of the event is startup metrics and we have William Wolfram, the founder and CEO of DealDash giving a presentation at the event. We recently interviewed Wolfram on Unfair Advantage about DealDash and their metrics. In the talk he said they're obsessed with metrics and have seen great many ways they can help take the company further.
The event takes place on Thursday, the 1st of March. Doors will open 18.00 and the event will start around 18.30. We will have William Wolfram's presentation starting immediately after a few introductory words, followed by networking and mingling afterwards.
We will have some free drinks available for those who come early, thanks to our sponsors.
