Entrepreneurs and Tomatos

Wednesday, April 29, 2009, 1:00 - 6:15PM 
Pre-register here or on-site
Jon M. Huntsman Hall, 3730 Walnut Street, Philly, PA 19104

If you know anyone young or old who is seriously considering the path of entrepreneurship, attending this afternoon-consuming series of twenty-minute (10/10 split - Presentation/Q&A) presentations from biz school students may be worth the investment. Pitching your startup is more an art than a science. I went last year and was alternately intimidated (by the business confidence and post-event networking skills of the top-tier students) and inspired (maybe I could grow a team to execute a startup).

Mashable and IndyHall Mixer on the Waterfront
Friday, May 1, 2009, 8:00PM until close
Cavanaugh's River Deck, 417 N. Columbus Blvd., Philly PA 19123

Do you like free drinks on the waterfront? This is going to kind of like the Philly Tech Scene's debutante ball. Mashable, a leading Internet news blog and IndyHall, our leading coworking space are joining to throw a party (generous sponsors providing the bar tab). Expecting geek lameness? You'd be surprised at how many interesting extroverts (guys and gals) are part of the Philly entrepreneur/tech community. T-Storms on Friday? Like the fortune cookie says: "it remains to be seen". The venue offers plenty of covered space.

Saturday, May 2, 2009, Doors 7PM, Starts 8PM
Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave. Philly, PA 19125

Ignite = 5 minute talks, 20 slides (auto-advanced every 15 sec.). After the success of the first Ignite Philly, I was worried the event was not going to be sustainable (as in how many interesting projects are going on in Philly), and I've been proven wrong. Past events have featured everything from sustainability ( to "How to hack cats into dogs" to paper airplane madness. I can't promise paper airplanes, and this is guaranteed to be an interesting 2 hours to spend drinking a lager and soaking up the interesting-ness of Philly's hackers and DIY-ers.
Sunday, May 3, 2009, 10:00AM - 2:00PM  
Headhouse Shambles, 2nd Street between Pine and Lombard

Come out and support and celebrate our local sustainability stars. This event will feature local cookbook author signings with live entertainment from local musicians. The regular farmer market will be open until it gets chilly again - Saturday (10 vendors) and Sunday (30 vendors) from 10am - 2pm.
