Grab a “byte” with Justin “Bugsy” Sailor

MARQUETTE, Mich. — It isn’t everyday you meet someone like Bugsy. Justin Sailor, more notably known as Bugsy, is a “doer of things.” Raised in Baraga, this entrepreneur now lives in Marquette, where he owns and operates Upper Peninsula Supply Co., the original U.P. apparel brand. In addition to his retail store, Bugsy has gained regional and and even international recognition for creating Plaidurday, the annual Worldwide Celebration of Plaid, celebrated on the first Friday in October and Yooper Singles, an online dating site that started as an April fools joke and went viral. The common thread that runs through all these ventures is Bugsy’s ability to connect with the community and successfully market his brands.

With this in mind, Innovate Marquette SmartZone has teamed up with Bugsy to host a lunch and learn presentation series coined, Bytes with Bugsy, at Ampersand Coworking Space in downtown Marquette. Each Wednesday for the month of June, the series will highlight different digital marketing topics vital to local businesses and entrepreneurs.

Series topics include:

6/6: Best Practices of the Web
6/13: Generating Web Traffic
6/20: Facebook vs Twitter vs Instagram vs YouTube
6/27: Easy Search Engine Optimization and Marketing

This sessions are free and open to the public, however, each is limited to 25 people and seats are filling up fast, so please reserve your spot on or by contacting the Innovate Marquette SmartZone office via email or phone (906)-227-6261. Doors will open at 11:30am, and the presentation runs from 12pm-1pm. Lunch is on the SmartZone, with sandwiches from Jimmy John’s provided for registered participants.

Innovate Marquette SmartZone is one of 20+ SmartZones in Michigan chartered with the mission of assisting in the acceleration, creation and growth of technology-based and technology-enabled start-ups and businesses in the state.
