Startups are by nature disruptive, but how do you build a successful company that totally breaks the rules in a given industry? How can you have both exponential growth and keep the same disruptive edge? This Entrepreneurs Unpluggd features 3 founders who are either blazing new trails in rusty industries or who have successfully built a company that caused a paradigm shift.

Mark Lawrence - CEO and Co-Founder of SpotHero
Aleksandra Efimova – President, Russian Pointe, Inc.
These three founders will talk about how they dealt with resistance to new ideas from customers, businesses, and investors. As usual at Entrepreneurs Unpluggd, you’ll hear the inside story with candid details about how these founders came up with their ideas, how they built initial products, and how they truly disrupted a market.
