3 Great Events over the Next 10 Days
Over the next 10 days there are 3 great events taking place in Silicon Valley that anyone interested in entrepreneurship should consider attending.
Tomorrow night (Wednesday, August 9th) is the 5th Stirr Mixer. The Stirr Mixers are highly social events that take place at the Blue Chalk Cafe in downtown Palo Alto. They bring together lots of entrepreneurs and investors in a friendly atmosphere. The events also feature 60 second elevator pitches from several preselected startups. I've attended all of the previous Stirr Mixers and had lots of fun each time but unfortunately I can't make this one.
Next Thursday (August 17th) Churchill Club is putting what looks to be a great event at the Palo Alto Hills Country Club in Palo Alto titled Startup Success 2006. The event is moderated by Guy Kawasaki of Garage Technology Ventures and features an all star lineup of Startup CEOs:
