A 1-day event that provides educational workshops, keynotes from Asian business leaders, and networking opportunities for fast-growing businesses who seek VC/angel capital and private investors. This is the third annual conference after 2 very successful events in San Francisco in 2006 and San Jose in 2007. While the focus in 2008 is attracting Asian CEOs/entrepreneurs and private investors, the conference is open to all attendees. We expect 300+ attendees. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for start-up, early stage, and expansion stage CEOs to learn about accessing equity capital and to meet private investors.
