Sun will host its fifth Sun Startup Camp event May 4-5 2008 at Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Sun Startup Camp San Francisco is an interactive unconference, where participants are invited to come, share, listen, and learn. Instead of typical conference sessions where speakers present to large audiences, Startup Camp involves leader-moderated discussions that everyone is free to contribute to.
Interested participants may also publish topic ideas for discussion sessions and view those that others are proposing, by visiting the Discussion Ideas page at: http://wiki.startupcamp.org/wiki/StartupCamp5DiscussionIdeas.
The event also includes SpeedGeeking, where startup founders can compete in the Best Startup Contest by presenting a 5-minute pitch of their business to VC led groups of peers. The top 3 participants who receive the most votes win prizes which range in value from a new server, 24" monitor to an iTouch.
Last but not least, participants also have an opportunity to mingle with the event co-hosts, who at past camps have included industry leaders such as Google, JLA Ventures, DFG, NaviSite, Microsoft, salesforce.com, SDForum, Sapoteck, Yahoo! , and ZDNET, to name just a few.
Registration (required) is easy and free! http://www.startupcamp.org/sc5sanfran_register.html
