Keith Deaven and Heather Gay are preparing to speak to Penn State students during Start Up Week, a week-long celebration showcasing entrepreneurs from around the country. Hosted by Penn State’s College of Information Sciences and Technology, Start Up Week was created to highlight the success of young entrepreneurs and innovators in technology and security, and to showcase the possibilities that exist for enterprising students. Keith and Heather are honored to be among over two dozen incredible speakers and presenters representing the very best examples of the entrepreneurial spirit, including founders and executives from Weebly, Reddit, Sincerely and Dropbox to name a few.
