Launch: Silicon Valley 2008

Posted on March 8, 2008


Well, it’s here (or at least it’s on coming…) – Launch: Silicon Valley 2008. I attended last year’s event and found the event to be a raw look at the start-up world.

At Launch: Silicon Valley, 30 presenting companies make a 10-minute onstage presentation, then receive candid feedback from a panel of venture capitalist and Silicon Valley professionals.

Companies that presented last year included several in the social media space, data security, and Guy Kawasaki’s Truemors. Guy is well-known for his presenting ability – worth the price of admission on his own.

For entrepreneurs interesting in seeing companies that have gotten over some initial hurdles – developing a working organization, getting a product to market – but still a ways from getting to the finish line, this a great event. Check it out.
