Technori co-founder Seth Kravitz and BodyShopBids CFO, C. J. Przybrl gave insight on how leaders in the tech scene socialize and feed off each other’s energy and out-of-the-box thinking. Crain’s reporter Steve Hendershot also hit up Phil on his coffeeshops-turned-tech-incubators.
“It’s a lifestyle of problem-solving,” says Philip Tadros, 32, who owns Chicago-based web-design and creative agency Doejo LLC, as well as several coffee shops where techies congregate, including Noble Tree Cafe in Lincoln Park. (He is launching another, called Bow & Truss, in partnership with Technori’s Mr. Kravitz, that is slated to open this spring.)
“My personality is so trained toward launching businesses and solving problems that it’s hard to meet somebody and have them not want that,” Mr. Tadros says.
