Chris Heivly offers a first-person extended metaphor for the earliest stages of starting a company, the curiosity-fueled process of building a fort. He lays out a step by step process with simple, actionable advice. The audience can engage with his experience at MapQuest, intra-preneurship, scaling existing companies, and investing in tech to glean useful nuggets about self-knowledge, courage and grit.

Chris is one of the co-founders of MapQuest (sold to AOL for $1.2B). Currently, he is one of two managing directors of The Startup Factory in Durham making 10-14 seed investments per year.
