About StartUp SF
Once again it is time for San Francisco's bi-monthly (that's every other month, folks) meetup designed to help Web 2.0 and Start-Ups "kick-start" their business. StartUp SF brings together technologists, entrepreneurs, developers, technologies, services and solutions in an environment designed to further your learning, meet like-minded professionals and promote networking in order to make you successful!
The next StartUp SF is schedule for Wednesday, June 18th from 6 to 9 PM in the 8th Floor Cafe at the offices of Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe (@ 405 Howard Street, San Francisco).
The format is simple:
6-7 PM --> Networking and Demo Companies (Demo companies will present for 2-3 minutes)
7-8 PM --> Guest Speaker (presentation with Q&A session)
8-9 PM --> Networking and more Demo Companies
StartUp SF is a not-for-profit event with all proceeds going to charity. All proceeds from this event will be going to Inveneo (http://www.inveneo.org), a demo company at this event. The last StartUp SF raised $400 for Habitat for Humanity.
With the success of the inaugural event behind us, we have lined up another stellar speaker, Brian Solis, of Bub.blicio.us and PR 2.0. To quote:
"bub.blicio.us is here to help capture the excitement and insight behind everything two point oh providing a lense into the social landscape that's energizing and shaping the new tech economy."
Following the StartUp SF theme of providing helpful information to becoming a successful start-up, Brian's presentation is titled: "Conversational PR for Start-ups".
Throughout the evening, the following companies (subject to change/additions) will be providing hands-on demos and answering questions about their product or service:
