BizSpark in LA and SF

Since the launch of BizSpark in November, we've hit the road and spent time in several cities in the US.

We participated at the New York New Tech Meetup in New York City on 11/11/2008, where I got to present to pitch 'BizSpark' to 300 entrepreneurs, alongside Steve Barsh of DreamIT Ventures (a BizSpark Network Partner)

I want to send out a very special thanks to Tammy Gilmore and Hugh Forrest from SXSW for helping us promote the event to the Austin area. SXSW is absolutely one of my favorite events of all time, and we're surely going to participate at SXSW 2009. So please be sure to register and attend!

In the next couple of weeks we will be visiting cities in the West Coast, specifically

We'd love for you to join us!
