EntConnect 2008 Entrepreneurial Connections conference in 2 months

The EntConnect 2008 Entrepreneurial Connections conference will be held just in over two months, from Thursday, March 27, 2008 through Sunday, March 30, 2008. This is an excellent opportunity for engineers with an entrepreneurial interest to get together and share ideas and experiences related to starting and running your own technology-oriented business. It is not restricted to technology types, but that is the main focus and primary interest.

I still do not have any details yet, but presumably it will be similar to past years, when it was held at the Sheraton Denver West hotel in Lakewood, CO.

The main part of the conference is usually a Friday evening dinner and discussion, presentations and discussions all day Saturday, dinner and more discussions and possibly a group activity Saturday evening, and a few more presentations and discussions Sunday morning. Thursday is resrved for skiing, if you wish. Friday is reserved for a combination of either skiing or some other activity (such as a tour of the Coors brewery.)

This is not a large conference and may total fifteen to thirty participants, but that gives it a more personal and interactive feel. In some sense, it really should be categorized as an un-conference since it is fairly informal and the participants help to structure the conference based on their interests.

I have my own web page for the conference, EntConnect 2008, which includes some info about past conferences, including pictures, but there is also a  Official EntConnect Entrepreneurial Connections web site as well. Also, you can check John Gaudio's A Better Blogsite for information as it may become available. John runs the conference.

The audience is primarily technical, engineer types, but also non-engineers as well as students who have an entrepreneurial interest. I would say that the audience is "eclectic." So, if you are entrepreneurial in any way and in the area or just want an excuse to go skiing in Colorado, check out this conference.
