I received an email today from Smartups.org, an organization sponsored by Palo Alto Software (my former employer) and the Lundquist College of Business (my Alma Mater). Yes, this city can feel very small at times!
Smartups is holding their first “Pub Talk” on April 2nd. Local startups will present their business plans to a panel of sober, gavel-wielding judges. Ok, I don’t know if they’ll have gavels, and I doubt they will be 100% sober, but how else could they look judgely? Wigs would be an excellent start…
Here is the link, and here are the details:
When: Wed., April 2nd, 2008 from 5:00-7:30 pm
Where: Davis’ Restaurant
