My friend Ron Schmelzer – the CEO of Zapthink and co-founder of Channelwave – pointed out an upcoming MIT Enterprise Forum (Cambridge, MA) conference called “Rated R for Revenue: Selling and Marketing Your Next Great Thing.” The conference is on Saturday February 12th at the Newton Marriott and looks super. My frat brother Colin Angle (iRobot CEO) and his iRobot co-founder Helen Greiner are the morning keynote speakers and the day is finished off by Reid Hoffman, the CEO of LinkedIn. The agenda looks great and is full of strong entrepreneurs and – ahem – a few venture guys.
My favorite line from Colin is “15 years running a robotics company plus my MIT education and I’m just a vacuum cleaner salesman.” If nothing else, Colin is worth the price of admission. If you are interested in this conference, you can register here.
