Sun Microsystems is hosting a free startup camp in San Francisco next Sunday and Monday, May 4 and 5, with an open agenda. The press release (yes, I admit, I’m taking this and one post tomorrow from a release) calls it an “un-conference event.” The following is from that release:
an un-conference networking event to hear from some Web 2.0 authorities, meet other startups and apply to Sun’s Startup Essentials Program. The event also includes Speed Geeking, where startup founders can compete in the Best Startup Contest by presenting a 5-minute pitch of their business to VC led groups of peers. Confirmed guests include: Pete Cashmore, Jonathan Schwartz, David Berlind, Om Malik, Matt Marshall etc. This event is a great way for startups to network and discuss ideas.
The website for that is http://startupcamp.org/ .
