Event Details

This event will be limited to 100 tickets

Media startups are a dime a dozen these days. From YouTube to Wordpress, there has never been a time with as many outlets to share your voice online.
Content has always been king!

Our next guest for our #BossUp series is one of the leading pioneers of media and content distribution in the digital and startup space. He has been in the tech game for well over 20 years and is ready to share that knowledge with YOU. This month we welcome Jason Calacanis of Inside.com for a fireside chat about turning your efforts into profits.

Through Calacanis' experience in the media game he will tell us how to create engaging communities who look forward to your content every single day. Most importantly he will tell us how to monetize that content which is something we could all use!

Calacanis has a long history in the startup world and his record speaks for itself. He got his start with the media publishing company Silicon Alley Reporter which told the inside stories of Silicon Valley long before Techcrunch. After The Reporter, Calacanis founded Weblogs in 2003. As a diligent blogger and marketing strategist, in two years Calacanis was able to grow the business to $1,000 a day profit just from Adsense. This rapid growth attracted AOL who agreed to buy Weblogs two years after its inception. (Like A BOSS!)

Most recently Calacanis has focused his time on angel investing. He was an early stage investor in Uber and was instrumental in creating the LAUNCH conference which spotlights unannounced startups and media companies. He still has his hand in the media industry and started Inside.comwhich gives you bite-sized tech information when you need it.

You know the motto learn from the best at all times, don’t miss your chance to #BossUp and learn from one of the best.


Besides walking us through his come up and hustling, Jason will tells us: 

- How and when to use other people's platform like youtube

- When and why you should create your own platform

- How to curate and engage a niche commuity for profits

- How to maximize your efforts for profitability 

- How to approach a boss like himself
