Entrepreneurship Abroad: A Conversation with Kevin Koym

Tue, April 21, 2015 | CLA 1.302B

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Everyone is invited to participate in an intimate discussion of best practices for starting up outside the United States. Many people focus on U.S. startup ecosystems like Austin or Silicon Valley but few realize it can be way easier to earn your first dollar overseas. Nick Spiller will interview Kevin Koym about his experience as an entrepreneur abroad followed by audience Q&A.

Kevin Koym is a seven-time startup veteran and currently CEO and Founder of Techrach Austin, a venture accelerator for early-stage technology companies. He is a highly respected leader in the startup community whose influence has been felt by over 4,000 entrepreneurs from 20 countries. Kevin's desire to solve the society's most pressing problems has gained him global recognition for establishing entrepreneur networks in the U.S., Mexico, Chile, Singapore and Korea.

Nick Spiller is the Founder of the Longhorn Entrepreneurship Agency and Student Ventures Coordinator in UT Austin's College of Liberal Arts. He has contributed to many of UT Austin's entrepreneurship program including Freshman Founders, UT Entrepreneurship Week, Longhorn Startup Lab and the Entrepreneurship Live. Nick has previously interviewed entrepreneurs like Tim League, Founder and CEO of Alamo Drafthouse, John Arrow, Founder and Chairman of Mutual Mobile, and Zach Dell, Founder and CMO of Thread.
