“I’m from Texas and ‘this ain’t my first Rodeo’” was Laura Roeder’s opener to her DCBKK 2015 keynote speech in which she described how the inspiration for building her successful company MeetEdgar.com came from her frustration with the existing software she’d had to work with in her career in marketing.
