Starting tomorrow until February 29, 2008 is the Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford University. Most of the events are free and open to general public.
I think I will check out the following sessions:
Friday, February 22
An acclaimed featuring numerous Stanford students competing in last year’s Innovation Tournament.
Feb 26, 2008
Network with students, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and other members of the entrepreneurship community, while enjoying complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages. This loosely structured event will help ensure that you get an opportunity to talk to others in your field of interest.
Most entrepreneurial endeavors need media coverage to get on the map, but it can also be a minefield. Find out how to get a journalist’s attention. Be forewarned: it’s not always pretty. A panel of seasoned journalists, media pundits and professionals will give it to you straight during this provocative session.
Hear a lively panel discussion on markets outside the U.S. Panelists will cut through the hype to share what’s really going on. Afterwards, meet in special interest groups to network over appetizers and beverages.
Students, pitch your business ideas to Silicon Valley venture capitalists (VCs).
Hope to see you there!
