Theme: After the Launch . . .

We often hear about companies that are launching, and we hear about companies that have sold. But what happens in between? What happens after the launch? There are many successful entrepreneurs in the Teton region, and we wanted to hear what they have been up to. What has happened in the days, weeks, months and years after they designed their website and open their doors?

We’ve asked Aiden Doane of Rex Specs, Brian Modena of TIMBR Creative Agency, and Andi Keenan of Penny Lane Cooperative to share their business journeys with us. They will be on our panel of business owners for “After the Launch”.

About Our Panelists:

She is a graduate of the Colorado College (2006) and the Leeds School of Business (2013) where she focused on operations and product development strategy. Aiden thrives on the fast pace startup phase and enjoys the creativity and analysis required to strategically grow an idea to a brand.
