A special guest will be coming to Downtown Fresno today to share his experience and knowledge with the Central Valley business community.

Marc Tarpenning, co-founder and former CFO of Tesla Motors, will be speaking at The Pi Shop product incubator on 1755 Broadway St.

Starting at 3 p.m. today, Tarpenning will be discussing his background and business journey, and how he and Martin Eberhard went on to create Tesla, which has become one of the most widely recognized automobile startups in America.

Started by Mark Jackson, founder and president of Blue Dolphin Design and Engineering, The Pi Shop is a coworking space dedicated to helping designers and creators make new products, and then helping them to market what they’ve made.

A suggested donation of $5 is required to attend the event. For more information, visit The Pi Shop Facebook page.
