Win free tickets and a demo table to the Founder Showcase in San Francisco!
By Jonathan Greechan (Partner, The Founder Institute)
The Founder Showcase is Silicon Valley’s Leading Seed-Stage Pitch Event, bringing together over 500 investors, founders, and press for one action-packed day to network, hear talks from leading CEOs, and help launch a startup to greatness.
There are still a few tickets left for Tuesday’s 10th Founder Showcase at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.
The Founder Institute is giving away 10 free tickets to Women 2.0 members! The first 10 to register here get the tickets!
Once the free tickets run out, Women 2.0 members can still grab tickets at a 20% discount when you register here. Tickets start at just $75, but time is running out.
As always guests will see an entertaining pitch competition on April 24 in San Francisco, CA featuring eight promising early-stage startups (previous contestants have raised over $35 million), and talks by two great keynote speakers:
- Kevin Hartz (Co-Founder & CEO of Eventbrite) – Why Eventbrite? Well, they doubled their revenue in 2011, recently surpassed 55 million tickets sold, and many anticipate an IPO in 2012. Kevin has also invested in/ advised numerous startups, including PayPal, Airbnb, Pinterest, Milo, Palantir, Indinero, TripIt, Flixster, Yammer, Boku, Trulia, and more.
- Dan Shapiro (former Founder & CEO, Sparkbuy & Ontela) – Dan now works at Google following their acquisition Sparkbuy, which he sold to them within 6 months of inception. Before that he was the Founder and CEO of Ontela, a pioneering mobile imaging company that merged with Photobucket, where he was named CEO of the Year by MobileBeat.
In addition, we will be hosting a special panel on global entrepreneurship featuring the winners of the Founder Institute’s 2011 Mentor Awards.
