Entrepreneur University

10/18/2013 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

You've never attended anything like the 2013 Entrepreneur University, where you'll literally sit in on one-on-one conversations between some of the region's top entrepreneurial thinkers! It doesn't matter if you're in enterprise or consumer products, not-for-profit or already profitable. You started small and are thinking big. You're growing your business, and you don't want to miss this event.

Start the day as 40 under 40 winner and CEO Liz Pearce has a cup of coffee with Concur CEO Steve Singh and gets advice on how to take LiquidPlanner to the next level. Later, listen in as two veterans Monty Montoya (Sight Life) and Robin Wolaner (Vittana) compare what they have learned running their nonprofits as viable businesses. Grab a Foster's with Aussie entrepreneurs Dave McLauchlan ( CEO) and the inimitable Jenni Hogan (CEO, TVInteract) as they loosen up over a couple of beers and chat about what they're seeing in the startup landscape.

Included in your price of admission is all these great speakers and the incredible panelists below. A "Taste of Pioneer Square" for lunch, and a hosted reception. Sponsor stations with great give-aways and a "Startup Scavenger Hunt" with a grand prize drawing. But wait, there's more!

Thinking about applying to an incubator or accelerator? Far friendlier than shark tank, our "Startup Tank" panel will tell you if you have what it takes. Ready to go viral? Our "Prime Time Pitches" provide you with priceless PR as the fabulous Jenni Hogan (TVInteract) interviews you on camera and captures the essence of your startup. Select student attendees get structured networking opportunities with Liz Pearce of LiquidPlanner and Julie Sandler of Madrona Venture Group. And last but not least, we're bringing back our popular eDate where you can get 1:1 speed dates with experts and mentors in team-building, finance, legal, sales, marketing, and scaling your startup.
