As always guests will see an entertaining pitch competition featuring eight promising early-stage startups (previous contestants have raised over $35 million), and we’ve lined up two great keynote speakers:
Kevin Hartz, co-founder and CEO of Eventbrite. Why Eventbrite? Well, it doubled its revenue in 2011, recently surpassed 55 million tickets sold, and many anticipate an IPO in 2012. Kevin has also invested in and advised numerous startups, including PayPal, Airbnb, Milo, Palantir, Indinero, TripIt, Flixster, Yammer, Boku, Trulia and more.
Dan Shapiro, former founder and CEO of Sparkbuy and Ontela. Dan now works at Google, following its acquisition of Sparkbuy, which he sold to it 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 host a special panel on global entrepreneurship featuring the winners of the Founder Institute’s 2011 Mentor Awards.
Don’t miss this great event!
