Leveraging the Cloud for Your Small Business

Have you always dreamed of starting up your own business but feared your head was just in the clouds? Well, these days that is exactly where you want it to be.

Cloud computing and small business apps let independent retailers and small businesses cherry pick sophisticated (yet simple) tools which can help them establish and grow their business at a fraction of the cost of traditional software. But with so many apps to choose from, how do you know what’s right for you and your business?

Join Stitch Labs and a panel of industry experts – including our very own CEO, Vaughan Rowsell – for a casual catch-up in San Francisco on Monday, October 8th, 6pm. Find out what’s worth your time, what works, and what can take your business to the next level.

Attendance is free, but space is limited to just 150 tickets – so don’t forget to register early. Maximum 3 tickets per order. (So you can bring a friend, and a friend of a friend, if you like).
