Start Conference

There was a "Start" Conference for Entrepreneurs in San Fran over the weekend. Here is what you would have learned:

  • Where to start. Hear how founders got started, where they screwed up, and why they kept going.
  • What you need. Hiring? Firing?!? Who’s watching the books? Do you really need a lawyer?
  • How to pitch. Hear some of the web’s most formidable entrepreneurs giving their best five-minute pitches. Then learn to hone yours.

These are the reasons you should attend conferences and events. Local events are good for Networking (= Marketing), but can also help you hear about how other business people are solving the same issues as you.

See you in Atlanta in October or at ISPCON in San jose in November.
