Zell at CU, NewsGator at University of Michigan, Feld in Vancouver, and Other Good Stuff
There are piles of great things going on all over the place right now. I’m really psyched about the energy level I’m seeing around entrepreneurship throughout the country, as well as the willingness of great entrepreneurs to get out there, tell their stories, and lead by example.
Here’s a handful of fun things going on, along with a few highlights from some from some of the companies I’m involved in.
Today is one of the big CU Entrepreneurship week events. Governor Bill Ritter will be speaking and making some interesting announcements from 3:10pm – 3:40pm. The topic is putting the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Perspective. The event starts at 2:45pm in the Wittemeyer Courtroom in the Wolf Law Building.
Sam Zell will be talking at CU on 4/22 at Noon. If you’ve never heard Sam Zell speak, this is not to be missed. He’s brilliant, blunt, controversial, and often hysterically witty. The event it free but you must register.
I’m doing Beers with Brad in Vancouver on 4/22 at Night. The attendee list looks great – if you are in / near Vancouver join us!
I’m talking at the Boulder Theater on 5/6. I’ll be there along with some of my closest friends, including Top Chef Hosea Rosenberg, Threadless’ Jeffrey Kalmikoff, and Lijit’s Micah Baldwin. Paper Bird will be playing some tunes – I promise not to sing.
The University of Michigan School of Information Executive Ed program is teaching a course from 6/1 – 6/3 on Making Social Computing Work in Your Enterprise. This is being done in conjunction with NewsGator.
And – if you are bored – here’s 2:37 from my talk with Phil Weiser on The Entrepreneurial Ecosystem as part of CU Entrepreneurship Week.
