Fireside Chat with Bill Spruill, co-founder and CEO of Raleigh’s Global Data Consortium
Fireside Chats are a continuing series of talks hosted by Launch Chapel Hill and the Eship Center. This series features real talks with real entrepreneurs: the good, the bad, and the ugly of their entrepreneurial journey thus far, not just the shiny success stories.
