      In today’s rapidly changing world, it doesn’t take much to make you feel like your business is falling behind. But the opposite is also true: there’s nearly unlimited potential for your business to thrive and expand.

      The difference between winning and losing sometimes comes down to how much you know—about the market, customers, tools, and the future. Sometimes succeeding is a matter of how effectively you can take your ideas and put them into practice.

      One entrepreneur who knows a thing or two about building businesses for the future—and making ideas happen—is Jason Fried.

      You’re invited to Vancouver Tech Journal Live with Jason Fried at Vogue Theatre

      Fried is the cofounder and CEO of 37signals, the creators of project management software Basecamp and email platform HEY. He also cowrote the New York Times bestselling book Rework, about which Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had this to say: "If given a choice between investing in someone who has read Rework or has an MBA, I’m investing in Rework every time. A must-read for every entrepreneur."

      Fried pioneered the idea that four-day workweeks could actually drive productivity (“When there’s less time to work, you waste less time.” Want more great soundbites? See here). And nearly a full decade before COVID opened the world’s eyes to telecommuting, Fried and cofounder David Heinemeier Hansson wrote the book Remote: Office Not Required, the classic guide to working from home. Fried is an innovator, a trailblazer, and a movement-maker.

      On September 21, Fried joins Vancouver Tech Journal and special guests at the Vogue Theatre for an in-depth conversation on technology, the big ideas changing business, and what it all means for the future of entrepreneurship.
