On Wednesday, May 4, at 5:30 p.m., BLU Jazz+ is hosting the next edition of BLUprints to EX[L]. This month’s program features EX[L] Founding Executive Director Jeff Hoffman, co-founder of Priceline.com.
Hoffman will speak about “Breaking New Ground.” He will be joined by special guest entrepreneurs Joel Testa, founder of Northside Speakeasy and President of Testa Companies, as well as Eric Wise, founder of The Software Guild.
Hoffman, Testa and Wise will discuss “Breaking New Ground,” then take questions from the audience. In the BLUprints context,”Breaking New Ground” means opening up new revenue streams, breaking into new markets or advancing innovative solutions onto emerging problems.
EX[L] organizers encourage those planning to attend to bring friends, coworkers and colleagues to what they describe as a new and exciting body of people, comprised of university types, business types, innovator types and hacker types.
There is no charge for admission and there will be free appetizers and a cash bar. A live jazz piano performance by Keigo Hirakawa will follow the program at 8 p.m.
