SVASE MAIN EVENT: Startup Founders – New Kids on the Block

Start: 05/08/2008 - 6:00pm
End: 05/08/2008 - 8:30pm
Timezone: US/Pacific

The landscape of the Web has changed radically in recent years, with start-ups sprouting daily and influence shifting from VCs to entrepreneurs. The cost of launching a business has plummeted, driven down by the advances in the "open source" software movement, outsourcing and the power of Web-based marketing.

In startup and tech circles, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's 23-year-old founder, is likened to a rock star, as are the founders of YouTube and Google. VCs have become more creative, often acting as seed investors in exchange for equity. "There's a lot of money chasing a lot of deals," said Venrock's David Siminoff.

Come hear from under radar founders making big waves in this new landscape.

They are excited about the future of technology and building companies. This lively panel of hot, up and coming entrepreneurs and founders will share their stories and insights as well as answer your questions about building a successful company.

The Panel:

* Paul Buchheit, Co-founded, FriendFeed, Inc.
* Joe DiPasquale, Founder & CEO, College Wikis
* Kirill Makharinsky, Co-founder, YouNoodle
* Eric Marcoullier, Founder & CEO, Gnip
