Presented by Seattle 2.0, the conference features an impressive roster of speakers, who will guide “pre-entrepreneurs” through the process of picking the right idea, building a team, wooing venture capitalists, building a product, and bringing it to market.
The conference also features sessions on an often-elusive goal: Making a profit.
StartupDay features local luminaries such as Keith Smith, (Co-founder & CEO of BigDoor Media), Monica Harrington (Chief Marketing Officer of Intersect) and Vivek Bhaskharan (Founder & CEO of Survey Analytics), as well as co-founders of LinkedIn, SlideShare and Posterous.
During the conference, attendees will be able to receive individual guidance from experienced entrepreneurs, investors and attorneys. Meetings will be booked on a first-come first-serve basis, so arrive early in the Advisory Room to sign up for up to two meetings.
“One of my goals is to help create more startups in this region,” says Jennifer Cabala, President of Seattle 2.0 and host of StartupDay 2010.
The conference is almost sold out, but a few tickets remain available. For UW students, StartupDay provides a discounted rate of $100. Register as a “Tech Worker” and enter the discount code UWSTUDENT.
