You might think that I am spending all my time speaking at, or attending, conferences and there are some weeks where that feels very true. This week is one of those, with a few back to back events that are worth mentioning.
Monday 5/7 is the day of Startup Camp II, at the Westin San Francisco Market Street. I will hang out there for the day, and will
probably lead/participate to a startup financing session, but there will be a lot of very interesting discussions.
Update: I just posted the slides that I used in the session this morning. Thanks to all involved for your participation and your many questions.
Update II: a few people complained that they could not really make sense of the slides (like the empty slides on Growth and Exit). This might indeed be the case since their sole purpose is to synthesize the points I covered in my talk.
Tuesday 5/8 sees the start of Software 2007 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara CA), a conference focused on the enterprise software market that will last for 2 days. As already mentioned, Ismael Ghalimi and I will lead the Enterprise 2.0 theme, made up of four panels.
Finally, I want to give a big shout to David Beach, the new co-chair of the SDForum Search SIG. He has put together a very interesting event for Tuesday Night over at Google on People Search. Very interesting topic that has seen a bunch of activity over the past couple of years, and it is just the beginning. Companies participating are Wink, ZoomInfo and Spock - Mike Arrington will be mc'ing. You can still attend that event by registering on site just before the session.
I will also swing by Stirr's Founder Mixer 2.5 on Wednesday. Another shout to Sanford Barr for starting this event that has become a must attend in the Bay Area for startup entrepreneurs, established companies and financiers.
Do come and chat if you are attending any of these events.
