Interested in learning how to leverage different technologies to support and grow your company’s business idea?  We’ll focus on how 3 Minnesota startups, Field Nation, Total Expert, and Agosto, have leveraged bleeding edge technologies to solve a meaningful business need. Join us as we discuss the new technologies these startups chose, how they overcame obstacles or blockers along the way, and how the technology helped them solve their unique business problem.

Agosto - Paul Lundberg, CTO at Agosto, will share how his team developed a proof of concept for a transit safety customer to solve a key scaling issue with their product offering by combining Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Agosto is an authorized Google Apps reseller, a Google Enterprise Solutions Provider, and a Google Premier Partner.

Field Nation - Travis Emslander, CTO at Field Nation, will discuss why geolocation/mapping is a vital capability for Field Nation’s business, how his team leveraged an open source solution to meet that challenge, and the significant savings gained in lieu of leveraging Google Maps. Field Nation’s platform offers a web-based marketplace solution to connect businesses directly with contingent workers.

Total Expert - Brian Walerius, CTO at Total Expert, will share how his team chose a front-end framework to match their business need. He will also discuss their considerations for using PHP, jQuery, and VueJS. Total Expert is a centralized platform to align your marketing, sales and compliance teams in one simple solution.
