Local start-up Seed Worthy develops technologies for developers, designers, and Internet entrepreneurs. BowTie, Seed Worthy's feature product, allows software developers to plug an API or simple application in and immediately turn it into salable product and business. BowTie is a new type of front-end hosting platform that lets developers launch MVPs (minimal viable products) in minutes. Plug-and-play front-end designs, policy control, email, payments, user management, customer CRM, multiple git repos, and powerful platform-wide analytics turn an MVP into a market-ready product. Person will discuss how BowTie works, its market strategy and its upcoming formal market launch in March.

Person co-founded Seed Worthy in 2013, along with CEO Scott Maloney and CTO James Kassemi. Prior to establishing Seed Worthy, he held positions at @Pay, a secure email payment company, as chief revenue officer, managing customer relationships and growing the sales operations, and as director of creative and user experience, responsible for marketing strategy and branding. Person was also the product manager for local design firm Ideum, where he was responsible for development and growth of the MT Series multitouch table line, led teams in the creation, engineering, and promotion of multiuser multitouch products, and designed multiuser multitouch interactive exhibits.
