KU Innovation Park launches Lunch & Learn series

KU Innovation Park is pleased to launch a lunch and learn series, focused on topics to help entrepreneurs and startups on their journey to success. The first lunch and learn is scheduled for Wednesday, July 17, and will be an introduction to growth marketing. Connor Borrego, the founder of playhaus, will share practical insights on the topic.

If you don’t have a big budget for generating leads and sales and have questions about recent changes to consumer privacy laws, this is the session for you. Get a brief history of the ads ecosystem and how it’s responding to those changes. You’ll also learn proactive steps to take with you to set your business up for success. With just $50 and some elbow grease, Connor will share his strategies for growth campaigns, along with growth hacking campaigns, first-party data warehousing, measurement and attribution basics, and the replacement of cookies.

This event is free, but a ticket is required. Please register here. If you register and can no longer attend, please let us know as soon as you’re able. This event is open to anyone. You do not have to work for a Park company to attend.

If you’d like to suggest topics for future lunch and learn events, please let us know.
