Not sure where to start? StartupDay 2010 (and this discount) can help you start your startup

Not sure where to start? StartupDay 2010 (and this discount) can help you start your startup

After a very successful initial event last year, the folks at Seattle 2.0 have organized another StartupDay. Filled with a—well, a day—of interesting talks from a wide variety of successful tech entrepreneurs.

And since bootstrapping your venture is all about making ends meet, we can probably save you a few pennies, as well. You see, if you’re willing to make the jaunt up to Seattle, you can also cash in on a discounted conference rate. But you have to act fast.

StartupDay 2010 is the conference for pre-entrepreneurs interested in founding or joining a tech startup. Learn what’s important for creating a tech business from scratch. Meet one-on-one with advisors. Learn how to pick the right idea, build your team, fund the business, build your product, bring it to market and make a profit.

That’s all well and good. But what kind of speakers are the pulling in? Some pretty darn interesting ones.

Like who? Whom? Who? Um. Who is speaking?

How about the co-founders of startups like LinkedIn, Slideshare, Posterous, and iLike? Because they are. So are folks like Dave McClure.

Long story short, it’s going to a deep dive into the world of entrepreneurship and what makes for a successful startup. Best of all? It’s all in a single track. So you don’t have to worry about missing an interesting session or trying to decide who to see when.

All that would be worth it, alone. But wait. There’s more. Guess what else you get?

No. No. Nope. Hunh unh. Maybe, but no. No. Yes a pony would be nice. I’m sorry where were we? Ah yes. What else you get.

Not only do you get to see a bunch of awesome speakers, you also get some one on one time with advisors to help you work through your own startup ideas and tribulations.

During the conference, a room of experienced entrepreneurs, investors and professionals will be available to have 15-minute-long, one-on-one meetings so you can seek guidance, advice and to establish business relationships.

On the day of the event you can book up to two meetings (more if availability permits) with any of the Advisors, on a first-come first-serve basis. Just look for the Advisory Room Registration table.

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? So what would you pay for something like this? Well, that doesn’t really matter does it. Because here’s what they’re charging: $195 for tech workers and $395 for non-tech workers.

That seems like a really good deal right? I mean, you already got $200 knocked off for being techie. But I like you, so I think you deserve a little bit more. So if you register in the next few days, you can use the discount code “siliconflorist” and that will garner you an additional 30% of the going rate.

How cool is that?

So go on. Go register. Scoot.

Oh wait. When? You want to know when? Fine. September 25. All day.
