If you're undecided on if the conference is right for you, here's 3 reasons you should be there:
1. You will enhance your brand.
You will spend two full days, plus a last-night party, mixing with sponsors, investors, fellow entrepreneurs, exhibitors and potential customers. More than 200 potential investors will be there, and there will be 200+ exhibitors. There will also be 100 Startup Grind Directors, 5,000 global founders attending, and all of the conference sponsors giving away all kinds of free stuff.
Sponsors, speakers, exhibitors and attendees all mix with each other, so the networking opportunities are amazing. At last year's conference, $1.5 million of investment was offered to entrepreneurs just via networking at the event, I wonder what that number was from after the event.
Whether you go to find new partners, investors or customers, you will expose your brand to your market. You may get the chance to give a "Startup Pitch" on the main stage because you are one of the lucky ones selected. In any event, you will, then, be able to use everything you learn to enhance your brand even more, after you return home.
Oh, and if you miss the conference, join our meetup groups in LA, SF, Denver, and more here. We host monthly pitch battles if pitching is your thing right now.
2. You Will Gain Powerful Insights. The keynote speeches and fireside chats cover many essential areas for entrepreneurs. Last year's agenda included, for example:
3. You get the chance to become a Startup Program member. Program members get increased visibility with their own demo table, guest blog opportunities, IBM Cloud credits and much more.
The Conference is a one-of-kind opportunity for entrepreneurs to learn, partner, pitch and find new investors. February 21, 2017 is not far away, so if you want to propel your brand forward, this is for you.
