    On Tuesday, September 25th, at 3pm, the amazing John Fox (Netflix), an entrepreneur, iOS magician and the man behind the Netflix app on iPad and iPhone, will be visiting Orange Grove for an “Ask Me Anything” discussion with startups.

And we mean everything! So prepare your questions!

     
    FEW WORDS ABOUT JOHN:


    John C Fox is a deeply-experienced software engineer and builder of both companies and products that are built-to-last. Over the years, his work has surprised and delighted the most demanding corporate clients and consumers all over the world. He has particular expertise in the fields of Digital Asset Management, Digital Storytelling and nearly all things video. Of equal importance, he is a devoted father, world-traveller, drummer, foodie and snark master general. It is, in fact, the latter that makes him succeed at the former. John lives in Sunny Perfect San Francisco, where at any given time, at least one of those things is true. If you’ve ever binge-watched Netflix on an iPad or iPhone to the detriment of your family or social life, John may be partly to blame, as he currently works on the team that creates the Netflix app for iOS.  Here is his LinkedIn profile which goes into more specifics: https://www.linkedin.com/in/johnfox4/


    This is a closed event for OG partners. If you are not an OG partner but would like to join us, please email us at relations@orangegrove.eu
