SmartCamp is an exclusive event aimed at identifying early stage entrepreneurs who are developing business ventures that aligned with the IBM Smarter Planet vision. This mentoring and networking events put entrepreneurs in touch with investment firms, serial entrepreneurs, academics, marketing, communications, and technology experts that can help accelerate the solutions of startup companies to market.
I’ll be speaking about Social Business to the budding entrepreneurs tomorrow, just in case you happen to be there. If you think about it, starting a new company is a great way to be socially calibrated from the start. It’s a chance to avoid information silos like e-mail, and to throw away your org chart now!
Other speakers at the event include:
- Carla Thompson, founder of SharpSkirts
- Aruni Gunasegaram, Austin Technology Incubator (a supporter of the event)
- Mike McCarthy, VP, Cloud Computing, IBM Global Technology
