Mr. Brewer, founder of MindSpring, is one of Atlanta’s first startup success stories, bringing to life one of the largest ISP’s in the country from his Midtown Atlanta apartment in 1994. With MindSpring, Mr. Brewer led a different kind of company, one that started with a list of core values instead of a list of products. He will discuss the decisions that led to the EarthLink merger, one of the largest and most talked about events of its day, as well as his thoughts on today’s startup landscape. His experience and reflections are a great inspiration for entrepreneurs in all sectors.
