Technology is rapidly transforming the restaurant industry. Hundreds of startups tackling everything from mobile payments and reservations to food sourcing and website development are working to improve restaurant operations and optimize the dining experience.
Get an inside look at how a handful of these startups operate at our ‘Restaurant Tech: From Sourcing to Reservations‘ Meetup on July 22 at LMHQ. Presenters will share what makes their technologies and business models unique, as well as their lessons learned from growing their companies. Each presenter will have 5 minutes to present followed by 5 minutes of audience Q&A. 30 minutes of open Q&A with all of the speakers will follow the last presentation.
There will be networking, wine from Taste Wine Company and nibbles from Ox Verte, Salsa Pistolero, Dig Inn and Wandering Bear Co. before the presentations start at 7:00 and after they end. More info on food and drink sponsors coming soon!
