Columbia, Md. – WeLearn Educational Software Founder and CEO Kevin Giffhorn is speaking at the July 10th Columbia Tech Breakfast.

He will also share the challenges of launching an app in today’s competitive marketplace and of managing a startup while teaching full-time.
Mr. Giffhorn brings over 15 years of teaching experience, as well as engineering sales experience, to his role as Founder and CEO of WeLearn. “For too long, technology companies have told educators how they should change the way they should teach to fit the technology.
