We’ve recently covered opportunities for web workers who need work, including our interview with Gary Swart, CEO of online staffing marketplace oDesk, and resources for web workers who have recently lost their employment. Whether you’re looking for places to work, or looking to launch an entrepeneurial online effort, you may want to tune into a free, online event being held tomorrow by Simply Hired, in conjunction with open source conference application provider Dimdim.
The interactive event is being hosted by Sramana Mitra, a successful entrepeneur, Forbes columnist, and author of the book Entrepeneurial Journeys.
The webinar is to be held tomorrow, January 14th, at 11am PSt/2pm EST, and free registration is available at Eventbrite. Dimdim is hosting and providing the underlying conferencing application for the event.
According to an advisory, Sramana will be speaking about and taking audience questions on:
Forming a business idea
How to find great mentors
How to fund your business idea
Mistakes to avoid
Sramana founded three technology-based companies, two of which were acquired. She has also had marketing and venture capital roles in a number of other technology startups, including web-based businesses, so web workers may find her input valuable, and may want to pose questions to her.
