It all starts with a great idea. Then, a business plan, a few key hires and a successful project. Suddenly, you’re fast tracking toward becoming leader. But what exactly does that mean? In a marketplace guided by speed to market and innovation, to be a leader means being equal parts visionary and tactician. How do you do that? Two Atlanta entrepreneurs will come together to try and answer that question. Jeff Hilimire, co-founder of Atlanta-based Engauge, sold his company to Publicis Groupe in September. He’s now launched a new company, Dragon Army. Danny Davis, an original Engauge partner, moved on to form Proving Ground. Between the two of them, they’ve seen the ups and downs of growing a business, building a team and winning business, right here in Atlanta and nationwide. In this intimate conversation, they’ll share what it means to lead everyday — their experience in the tech and marketing space, the lessons they’ve learned and what they’d tell new companies just starting out.
