Startup Weekend Orange County 2015 #SWOC15 In this presentation, Marcus Nelson gives some no-nonsense advice for building a great software product.

So very pleased to share we've been selected as Forbes' Best Startup Website -- better still, you should read about the guy who designed it for us.
We're very pleased to share that Addvocate's website was mentioned on Forbes.com today as having one of the best startup websites - Thanks to Vinh Tran
