What is Entrepreneur Camp?
Entrepreneur Camp is a BarCamp style event with the goal of bringing together entrepreneurs, investors, VC's, business leaders, and anyone interested in starting a business to network, share ideas, and explore opportunities. The first Entrepreneur Camp will be held in Houston, Texas on August 6th & 7th, 2009.
Who is Invited?
Anyone who is interested in entrepreneurialism and business! We welcome those who want to form a startup, those who already have a startup, those interested in investing in startups, and anyone else looking to learn from the entrepreneur community.
Why is it Called a Camp?
Our event is a community-driven conference in the style of BarCamp. “Camp” implies that the event is informal with an emphasis on face-to-face interaction with other attendees. “Community-driven” means that the attendees of the conference actually run the conference by discussing topics appropriate to the subject of the event. The presentation schedule is determined on the morning of the conference and anyone who attends is welcome to present. Attending the camp is FREE! To all of those that attend, the camp is free, and supported by sponsors, volunteers, and the community.
What's Different About Entrepreneur Camp Houston?
We wanted to take the un-conference a step further, and offer a bit of structure to some of the event to make it more dynamic and rewarding for all of those involved. Because of this, we will have a separate room dedicated to those with startup ideas or existing companies that wish to pitch their company to a panel of investors and business leaders. The participating companies will have 2 minutes to make their elevator pitch to the panel. The winner of the pitch contest will win a 1 hour consulting session with the investors and business professionals to evaluate their idea or startup! ;
