Seattle 2.0 reaches out to Pre-entrepreneurs with StartupDay

by Rob Lewis | Startups

Today Seattle 2.0 announced that they are adding another startup event to their line-up which includes the successful inugural Seattle 2.0 Awards in May.

This time around rather than celebrating the successful startups in Seattle, they're running a conference to help increase the number of startups in Seattle: StartupDay 2009.

StartupDay 2009 is a first of kind conference because it focuses on pre-entrepreneurs, those who have yet to join or found a startup. It will be a full day of talks from the most successful and respected entrepreneurs in Seattle.
If you are a technology person (developer, tester, program manager, general manager) and you want to learn more about startups and how to make them successful this is the conference for you. It doesn’t matter if you are ready to found or join a startup now, or if you just want to learn more to be better prepared once you decide to leave your corporate job.
The speaker list is long and includes some past and present success stories including  Dave Schappell of TeachStreet (formerly at Amazon & JibJab), Jonathan Sposato, Founder and CEO of Picnik (formerly at Microsoft and Google), and Seattle 2.0's own Marcelo Calbucci formerly at Microsoft and Sampa.

Registration for the conference opens today and there is an early-bird price of just $95 until August 21st.
