IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL EVENT

The IQ Brew is a networking and educational series featuring short presentations from entrepreneurs, small businesses and subject-matter experts. The goal of The IQ® Brew is to share lessons learned and to have the Richardson business community hear about the successes and challenges faced while starting and growing a business. Come join us for coffee and conversation every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month!

On Thursday, August 11, The IQ® Brew will feature Clarence Bethea, founder and Executive Chairman of St. Paul based, Upsie, a venture-backed tech company disrupting the extended warranty industry. Clarence has raised $30m from some of the top venture firms in the country including True Ventures, Samsung, Avanta (AAA), Techstars, Matchstick Ventures, Bread & Butter Ventures and other notable firms. He’s been written about in fast company, Entrepreneur, TechCrunch, MPR and many more. Clarence is a committed mentor to entrepreneurs and young people who are seeking a career path in business and entrepreneurship.
