Happy Monday morning to you. As I get back into the office today, absorbing my coffee, catching up on things after a week of business travel, I noticed Laura Leites has a posted very good list of Small Business Summits, Workshops, Events, and Webinar on Small Business Trends.
These are mostly local events, a few on them online, a chance to get out of your office and go listen to and think about what somebody else has to say. I posted on this blog Friday about the Small Business Technology Summit in New York tomorrow. I had some free tickets available for that and I don’t know until I check later whether we still have any. Instructions are on that post. And Laura’s post on Small Business Trends offered some free tickets too. Seth Godin is speaking there, which means it’s likely to be a very good day. And – bias alert – Palo Alto Software is one of the many sponsors.
Laura also lists local small business events in a lot of different places, and many on the web, all happening in the second half of March, April, May, and June.
One thing I’d like to add is our own Willamette Angel Conference, on May 13 in Eugene, OR. A group of us will be awarding angel investment (our own money) to the winner of a venture competition.
