Entrepreneur Conferences Scheduled for 2005
The success of Garage’s first “Art of the Start” Conference in June 2004, with more than 300 high-tech startup entrepreneurs attending, has spurred Garage to schedule further editions to the series. Garage has slated a regional event at the University of Central Florida on Feb. 24, 2005, to be followed by a Silicon Valley edition on April 21, 2005 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.
The conference series is based on The Art of the Start, the latest book by Garage Technology Ventures managing director Guy Kawasaki. The book reached the bestseller lists of BusinessWeek and the Wall Street Journal, and has been adopted as an entrepreneurship text by major business schools, including Stanford University. Based on Kawasaki’s and the Garage team’s experience in helping entrepreneurs, The Art of the Start features time-tested, battle-hardened business strategies and tactics entrepreneurs need to succeed.
Michael Moritz, general partner at Sequoia Capital, has joined many others in praising the book. “A successful entrepreneur requires three things: a garage, an idea, and this book–Guy’s irrepressible guide to the raw essentials of life in a young company. I wish we could post all this information on Sequoia Capital’s web site because it would make our jobs as VCs much easier,” commented Moritz.
Since its founding in 1997, Garage has dedicated itself to mentoring entrepreneurs through signature events such as the Bootcamp for Startups series and the more recent the Art of the Start series.
“Our goal is to help the next wave of entrepreneurs build the next generation of great technology companies. We help them by drawing on our experience and the experience of other successful entrepreneurs and investors,” noted Kawasaki.
