Fosterly Study Hall, Media & Enterprise Focus @ Discovery [DC/MD/VA]
Wednesday, July 31, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
Silver Spring, MD
Come to Study Hall to develop and improve your ideas with fellow entrepreneurs and subject matter experts. Think: Ultra-collaborative co-working.
This Fosterly Study Hall has a media and enterprise tech focus, and we'll have a variety of devices on hand from the Discovery Tech room for attendees to check out.
If you have a product or technlogy you would like to get in front of Discovery, here's your opportunity.
Limited to approximately 50 people, this Study Hall will be hosted at the Dicsovery Communications' global headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland just a few blocks from the Silver Spring metro stop (on the red line).
The world's #1 nonfiction media company, Discovery reaches more than two billion cumulative subscribers in 223 countries and territories via television networks which include Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, Science and Investigation Discovery, as well as online via websites such as Revision3.com.
Please note that this event has a curated attendee list as registrations will exceed the room's capacity. Accordingly, we encourage you to take the time to complete the brief registrion questions as the curation process is conducted solely on the responses provided.
Our goal is to provide a collaborative environment with a diverse skill-set in the room, so please make sure you complete the form fields during registration. We use your answers to select an amazing mix of attendees. 1-week before the event, we will send you an email confirming your ATTENDEE status.
Due to the limited capacity (50 people) and the desire to keep the interactions meaningful, not everyone will be put on the ATTENDEE list, but if you don't get in, we encourage you to apply to the next Study Hall event.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Doors open at noon and 1-minute intros begin at 1pm:
- State your name & business
- Tell us about what you're working on
- Describe a challenge you need help with
- Share your areas of expertise and how you can help others in the room
By the time you leave Study Hall, another attendee will be able to help you solve your challenge or be able to introduce you to someone that can. We've already confirmed a stellar group of subject matter experts (VC's, journalists, etc...), and anticipate a fantastic afternoon.
MORE ABOUT STUDY HALL
Fosterly’s Study Hall is a collaborative co-working event focused on enhancing community between its entrepreneurial members. Study Hall attendees receive feedback and support from peers and experts, and lend their expertise to other participants in return.
With the help of community sponsors such as Verizon and Microsoft, Fosterly provides the environment, WiFi and space to work and create. It’s up to attendees to bring their computers, a willingness to collaborate, and their entrepreneurial spirit.
Study Halls can be subject matter focused or general in nature and range in size from 50 to 300 attendees. Fosterly recruits subject matter experts, investors and experienced entrepreneurs to participate as special guests at Study Hall. These special guests engage informally with attendees and help to facilitate collaboration.
It is important to note that Study Hall is not an event to pitch for funding or sell services.
Fosterly’s mission is to support collaborative entrepreneurship and the growth of new organizations.
