October's Sprout Up features Rypple's Daniel Debow this week

Posted by Rob Lewis

This week Sprouter is hosting a special Sprout Up Toronto to celebrate Small Business Week 2010.

The guest speaker will be Daniel Debow, one of Ask.Sprouter.com’s expert entrepreneurs and co-founder of Rypple.

Daniel Debow is a co-CEO of Rypple. Daniel was one of the founders and the VP of Corporate Development and Marketing for Workbrain, an enterprise software company. He holds a JD and an MBA from the University of Toronto and an LLM in Law, Science & Technology from Stanford University. He's a huge music fan, plays the bass (badly), and spends far too much time online. He lives in Toronto with his wife.

Rypple was in the news last month when they announced they had raised $7 Million in financing led by Bridgescale Partners.

The October Sprout is on Wednesday, October 20th from 6pm-9pm at The Courthouse at 57 Adelaide St. East. Register now to attend.

Sprout Up is a free monthly event for forward-thinking Toronto area entrepreneurs to gather and mind-meld. A great chance for startups around the city to get friendly, discuss current trends, and network in a casual, open, and focused setting. Attendees walk away with new insights, new friends and actionable ideas for their businesses.
