David Cummings says often that a startup becomes a business when the entrepreneur is no longer required in the day to day operations. I hope that’s also true for meetups like Pitch Practice. I hope Pitch Practice meets for years long after I’m off in the wild blue yonder. To that end, thanks to TenRocket’s Founder & CEO Chris Turner for taking the reigns last Friday while I led 40 people towards the Google Analytics IQ Certification down at General Assembly.
