NSIN’s Marketplace Playbook took place on Wednesday April 3rd from 6:00-8:30 pm. Elke Keeley was our speaker for this event. Elke is the founder of UrbanYou, an app that allows users to pick and choose cleaning services for their home based on reviews and various prices. Her presentation was great and explained her story of how she got into the startup industry and why she chose to exit, instead of take on more investors.
