Relationships Matter:

Harnessing The Power of Your Network to Build Your Startup

Thursday, May 24th, 2012 - 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET

Scott CaseScott CaseTimothy "Scott" Case (not related to Steve Case) is a technologist, entrepreneur and inventor and was founding CTO of Priceline, the "Name Your Own Price" company that was one of only a handful of startups in U.S. history to reach a billion dollars in annual sales in less than 24 months. As Chief Technology Officer, he was responsible for building the technology that enabled Priceline’s hyper-growth.

Most recently, Scott was named CEO and board member of the Startup America Partnership, where he’ll invest his energy to drive American entrepreneurship to create jobs and sustain our nation's global leadership.

  - Rohit knew he wanted to be a writer after he wrote his first screenplay back in 10th grade. While he didn't end up writing movies, for the past decade he's been working as a marketing consultant to help companies to be more human. His
 first book called Personality Not Included was all about how to develop and share a story and personality for a company. His second book, LIKEONOMICS (out this month) is about why we do business and build relationships with people we like. 

Outside of writing and consulting, Rohit is SVP of Global Strategy at Ogilvy and teaches marketing as a Professor at Georgetown University. He has been invited to speak at over 100 events around the world, including TEDx and the World Communications Forum in Davos.

He is also the founder of Structo a cloud developer platform, and HeyAstro!, a customizable daily email service. Zvi is a leader in the local tech community, founding ProudlyMadeInDC, as well as co-founding DC Tech Summer & the DC Tech Meetup.

The goal of Tech Cocktail Sessions is to inspire and educate people on how to start and run a business with experienced entrepreneurs sharing their personal stories. Each month will have a different theme related to the various elements that go into starting up and building a company and feature a diverse set of entrepreneurs who will share their experiences.

Sessions was born out of the positive response to our annual Startup Mixology Conference which breaks down the various ingredients that go into starting and running a business in today's technology and business landscape. But rather than offer you one opportunity a year, we're now bringing this opportunity to you each month. Enjoy more speakers and chat with your peers afterwards about the evening's topic of conversation.
