ABOUT TiEcon 2009:
TiEcon is TiE's premier annual event and is the largest convention in the world dedicated to entrepreneurs. On May 15th and 16th, TiE Silicon Valley presents the world's largest conference on entrepreneurship: TiEcon 2009 for the BOLD Entrepreneur. Over 4,000 participants will engage in a rich dialog with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, industry executives, and thought leaders in two action-packed days at TiEcon 2009.
This year's TiEcon will host the first annual showcase of 50 of the most promising startup companies across five focus segments. This year's focus segments are: Consumer Web, Internet Infrastructure, Cleantech, Wireless, and Software.
PowerConnect participants will spend almost 3 hours over lunch with 100 other relevant entrepreneurs, industry leaders and VCs with similar background and interest in their segment area. The sessions will include intense interaction at a small group level, as well as interactive panels with leading industry experts in that segment.
Even the boldest entrepreneur needs to consider the practical aspects of managing a company such as funding, legal issues, building teams, scaling sales and creating hype through PR campaigns. This year's TiEcon will offer four bootcamps focused in each of these areas.
* Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn
* Paul Maritz, VMWare
* Hans Morris, Visa
* Brad Smith, Intuit
TiEcon is ideal for:
