Startup Risk & Technology Choice

When 2019-11-12 | 11:30:00  
Event Title Startup Risk & Technology Choice
Presenter Scott Sumi
Where OCLC's Kilgour building auditorium
Event description:


Startups are often focused on de-risking various aspects of their company, whether that’s in terms of funding or team or product/market fit. Choosing technology that’s right for your organization’s goals is another way to effectively help reduce your startup’s risk and give your team a fighting chance at success.

This presentation will discuss Rhove’s technology choices, including using Java for the main product platform, through the lens of startup risk. I’ll show how you can build a decision framework for your own organization to help figure out where it’s appropriate to build for stability vs speed, and how you don’t necessarily need to compromise for your most critical applications.


Scott helped co-found Rhove ( in 2018 and is focused on expanding the concept of home ownership. He is currently building the engineering team in Columbus to provide fast, secure and beautiful financial applications for renters. With over 20 years of experience in software development, he has worked in startups, design agencies, transportation scheduling and financial services. As a self-taught developer, Scott values the role of mentors in software careers and loves to give back whenever possible.
