Someone way smarter than me once said, “The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.” Well, if you’re thinking about doing a startup but haven’t quite managed to step off that cliff, then your first step might want to be pointed in the direction of Startup Day.
A single day event hosted by our friends to the north at GeekWire, Startup Day is designed to get you up to speed on any number of issues affecting the world of startups:
Seattle 2.0 Startup Day: Planning to make the startup plunge, or already in the deep end? Look no further than this one-of-a-kind one-day conference to inspire and inform your new life as an entrepreneur. GeekWire is pleased to present the fourth year of this popular favorite, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday Sept. 22 at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Wash, followed by a reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The day features a series of entrepreneurial veterans who will share their experiences and key lessons from the world of startups. Featuring keynoter Aaron Levie, Co-Founder and CEO, Box. Stay tuned to GeekWire for additional speakers.
Expanding the great Startup Day tradition, we’re adding live versions of popular GeekWire features: Elevator Pitch and the Startup Resource Center. In the morning, a handful of lucky entrepreneurs can pitch their ideas to investor judges, get feedback and compete for a chance to present to the entire Startup Day audience. To get in on the Elevator Pitch, register below (no extra charge but space is extremely limited; choose ticket type “entrepreneur + elevator pitch.”).
Sound interesting? Well you better hurry. Early bird pricing ends today. And they’ve also been kind enough to provide a super special discount for Silicon Florist readers. Just use the code: sfvip.
And if enough of us sign up, who knows? It might be another opportunity for Geeks on a Train or Geeks on a Plane or maybe even Geeks on a Bolt Bus.
