For those of you out there looking for some practical advice on Internet company building, I'm speaking at an event this week called "From Garage to IPO: How to build a successful consumer Internet company." The event is a day long tutorial being put on by the TiE Internet SiG, of which I'm an Advisory Board Member. There are a lot of great folks involved in the event, including Iggy Fanlo from AdBrite (formerly from Shoping.com), James Currier from Ooga Labs (formerly from Tickle), Reid Hoffman from LinkedIn (formerly from PayPal), Caterina Fake from Yahoo/Flickr, Heather Harde from Fox Interactive, Manish Chandra from Kaboodle, Munjal Shah from Riya, and a bunch of other great people. We'll cover topics ranging from getting started to partnerships to customer acquisition to monetization -- it should be a great discussion for new and seasoned entrepreneurs alike.
Here are the details on the event:
