Business Plan Competition at Global Technology Symposium, Stanford University

If some of you, my readers happen to live in the Bay area, and you are either an entrepreneur, industry professional or  investor - listen up! 

I’m going to spend the next three days at Global Technology Symposium at Stanford University. This year the symposium will be hosting a start-up pitch competition for early stage companies looking for financing from institutional investors. Early-stage global technology start-ups will pitch their presentations to a panel of global venture capitalists. 

I was told there has been over 60 companies evaluated, and 6 companies selected to present.

This is going to be a great opportunity to network with 100-150 entrepreneurs andventure capitalists from all over the world, and see what kind of start-ups are getting traction. The goal of the event is to provide forum for live networking and exchange of cutting edge ideas on emerging technologies coming from countries like Brazil, China, India, and Russia.

Now, here is a hint - this event is a portion of the symposium agenda which does not require registration. If you are around and like the opportunity - see you there!
