LEXINGTON, Ky., July 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rubicon Global CEO Nate Morris will share his expertise with Kentucky’s next generation of entrepreneurs during a talk on July 7 at startup incubator Awesome Inc.
Rubicon, the leading provider of cloud-based sustainable waste and recycling solutions, is headquartered in Lexington and Atlanta. Since it was founded in 2008, the company has grown exponentially to include customers from Fortune 500 corporations to independent businesses in 18 countries. As a lifelong Kentuckian, Morris is committed to helping other local entrepreneurs develop and execute their vision.

During the event, Morris will speak to eight entrepreneurs in the Kentucky startup community.
