We will host a live chat with Mike McGee on Thursday, October 17th at Noon PST, 3PM EST, right here on the Young Entrepreneurs blog. Mike McGee is the co-founder of The Starter League, an in-person school in Chicago that teaches beginners how to code and design web apps in 3 months. Before The Starter League, Mike's greatest claim to fame was that his High School mascot was a pretzel. He went to Northwestern for four years where he spent two years being a student and two years in student government - miraculously becoming Student Body President Senior year. In Spring 2011, Mike decided to turn down Obama for America (his first real job offer) to co-found The Starter League.
