I’m excited to announce StartupDay 2011
, the conference for pre-entrepreneurs. Last year’s conference was a tremendous success with a high satisfaction rate. 96% of attendees said they would recommend the event to a friend or co-worker!
This year StartupDay
will be Saturday, September 17th at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue (just 15 minutes from downtown Seattle). It will feature 15 talks by an all-star line up of speakers. StartupDay 2011 speakers are all entrepreneurs — these are people who don’t just talk, they do. The talks cover what you need to know about building your tech startup, from picking an idea to being acquired and everything in between.
To make the conference valuable to attendees from 2010 and to new attendees, we have a new line up of speakers.This year’s speakers include:
If you are a technology person (developer, tester, program manager, general manager, architect, etc.) and you want to learn more about building a successful startup then this is the conference for you. It doesn’t matter if you are ready to found or join a startup now, or if you just want to learn more so you can be better prepared once you decide to leave your job and become an entrepreneur.
Attendees can also sign up for the incredibly popular advisory room
. You will have the opportunity to sign up for private one-on–one meetings with people who can help your startup, from attorneys to accountants to VCs and angel investors to entrepreneurs.
This is going to be a great event. Save your spot before it’s too late:
