Kauffman Foundation Provides 15 Scholarships to Defrag 2010

The Kauffman Foundation just announced that they are providing 15 scholarships to Defrag. If you are an entrepreneur running a startup that is pre-Series A funding, you are eligible for a scholarship.  Kauffman will cover the full cost of the conference pass – all you have to do is get to the conference and find a place to sleep.

I’m hugely appreciative that Kauffman has stepped up to do this.  Conferences are not cheap and it’s a big expense for a company that has no funding.  On the other hand, it’s an incredible networking and learning opportunity for a startup that’s addressing issues in the ecosystem that Defrag covers.  Paul Kedrosky had a big hand in this and has been super helpful to Eric Norlin at Defrag from the beginning – thanks Paul – you are a star.

If you are interested in applying for one of these scholarships, just email Eric Norlin (enorlin AT mac.com) with your name, company website, and a 100 word (no more) explanation of why you should be at Defrag.
