StartupDay was this Saturday and a great community success. It had great buzz, turning #startupday into a twitter trending topic and maxing out my row feeder account. We also had coverage from GeekWire and plenty of individual bloggers. I say it was a great community success, because while Startup Weekend and Startup Foundation organized the event we had help from Seattle 2.0’s Marcelo Calbucci, more than a dozen fantastic sponsors, 30 advisors and 15 speakers. We also had a full house with more than 350 people!
 
Talks and Slides 
Speakers included Brian Wong, Glenn Kelman, Micah Baldwin, Marc Nager, Megan Casey, Brian Goffman, Scott Porad, Jenny Lam, Jonathan Sposato, Sean Ellis, Tom Seery, Matt Shea, Rand Fishkin, T.A. McCann and Eric Ries. You can find their slides — except Micah who went without — on SlideShare. We hope to have videos back and uploaded in a few weeks.
  
StartupDay was a world class experience, one we couldn’t have done without the great companies who support entrepreneurs.  Thank you toStartupDay 2011’s incredible sponsors.
