An entrepreneur responsible for more than a dozen startup companies during his career will be the guest speaker at e2e Laramie’s meeting this month.

Steve Lynott, currently managing director of CoVergence LLC and senior adviser to 1901 Group, a venture he started in 2010, will speak Wednesday, Sept. 24, 5:30-7 p.m., at the Laramie Hilton Garden Inn.

Lynott will share his stories about his business ups and downs, and lessons he learned from working on more than a dozen startups.

“Steve has a penchant for innovation (learning faster than the competition), for finding unique ways of funding a venture and for demystifying the sales process,” says Heather Marie Fleming, assistant director of the University of Wyoming’s Wyoming Technology Business Center (WTBC). “Most notably, he will share insights from his failures as well as from his successes in working on over a dozen startups in consulting, software, publishing and information technology.”

Lynott began his career as marketing director at Unysis Corp. He then founded, grew and successfully sold Touchstone Consulting Corp., a management consulting company. Touchstone specialized in executive consulting for government, state agencies, financial services, non-governmental organizations and industry associations.
