Second Ticket Release = The Web Starts at the Grassroots with Erick Schonfeld
Thursday, September 25, 2008 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (CDT)
100 Tickets Now Available for “The Web Starts at the Grassroots” Roundtable Prior to the TechCrunch Austin Ventures Meet-Up in Austin, Texas
Today, we are releasing 100 tickets for “The Web Starts at the Grassroots” Roundtable discussion prior to the TechCrunch Austin Ventures Meet-Up at Pangaea. Tickets are $50, with all of the proceeds benefitting the Lance Armstrong Foundation , an organization uniting people to fight cancer – believing that unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything.
The Roundtable will be held at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center located on the University of Texas at Austin campus, starting at 3:00 p.m. (Austin Time) on Thursday, September 25. This will be similar in format to the Mobile Web Wars Roundtable I hosted in July—two dozen founders, CEOs, VCs, and execs in a room talking about an issue, live streamed over the Web. The Roundtable will focus on how to use the Web to build grassroots support for startups, brands, politicians, and social causes.
“The Web Starts at the Grassroots” participants include a growing list of relevant experts:
· Greg Bettinelli, VP Corporate Development at Live Nation
· Vinay Bhagat, Founder of Convio
· Andrew Busey, CEO of Challenge Games
· Matt Corey, VP of Marketing Golfsmith
· Jeff Dachis, Founder and former CEO of Razorfish
· Jay Hallberg, Founder and EVP Marketing of Spiceworks
· Brett Hurt, Founder and CEO of Bazaarvoice.
· Paul Korzilius, Manager of Bon Jovi
· Sean McDonald, Director—Community | Conversations at Dell
“The Web Starts at the Grassroots” tickets, also, will provide you with entry to the TechCrunch Austin Ventures Meet-Up at Pangaea (starting at 5:30 p.m. CST). Reserve your tickets now , as we only expect to release one additional round of tickets prior to the event. We do have a handful of three day ACL passes, including backstage access and admission to the Austin Venture tent, to give away to sponsors and designated attendees.
The TechCrunch Austin Ventures Meet-Up will be held at Pangaea , one of the hottest new venues in Austin. At Pangaea we will feature local start-ups and other sponsors, starting at 5:30 p.m. (central time) and running to 10:00 p.m. (or whenever they kick us out).
