Why Your Startup Should Get A Startup Avenue Booth At Everywhere Else Cincinnati

Everywhere Else Cincinnati, EE Cincy, Startup Village

Update 8/29/2013- After being contacted by the legal eagles at SXSW we had to change the name of the startup exhibition at Everywhere Else Cincinnati, from Startup Village to Startup Avenue! Nothing else has changed as far as the Startup Avenue ticket, section, and features are concerned.

The Startup Avenue booths at Everywhere Else Cincinnati are going fast. We have just two early bird discounted booths left at $495 before the price goes up to $749.

Yesterday we brought you 42 reasons to attend Everywhere Else Cincinnati, the national startup conference specifically for startups everywhere else. Our mission is to help startups “Start Where U Are”.

One of the unique things about Everywhere Else is that we make it possible for even bootstrapped entrepreneurs and founders to attend and get a top shelf startup conference experience. For example, early bird attendee tickets are just $99 and early bird Startup Village booths are only $495 (and include 3 attendee tickets). Compare that to some of the other big conferences which cost up to 10x more.

Startup Village will give your startup the opportunity to showcase in front of hundreds of investors, entrepreneurs, and other founders. You’ll be able to rub elbows with angel investors and VC’s from your local region and from everywhere else.

Not only do we have some great VC and angel firms already committed to attend and even speak at the conference (like Fortify Ventures, Dundee Venture Capital, SoftBank Capital, The Mercury Fund and Lightbank), but Everywhere Else Cincinnati is the lead-in to The Brandery’s demo day which is one of the most well attended accelerator demo days outside Silicon Valley. Many of those investors will be at Everywhere Else.

You’ll be able to network with other founders, designers, and developers and possibly find your next rock star teammate.

Your startup will compete against the other startups in the Village for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes that will help your startup get to the next level.

The Startup Village Booth registration includes 10′ x 10′ booth space with 8′ table, 3 attendee tickets, 1 VIP ticket to the investor & startup only luncheon, a chance to pitch on stage, and more.  Register for your Startup Village with the early bird discount below.

LaunchTn Reveals All 50 Startups In The Southland Startup Village, 17 From Nashville

LaunchTn, Launch Tennessee, startups, Southland, startup villageLaunch Tennessee the private/public partnership designed to support 9 accelerator regions for startups in entrepreneurship across Tennessee is highlighting the entire south east region, it’s culture, technology and startups at the upcoming Southland Conference in Nashville in two weeks.

Of course the day and a half long conference, being held at The Cannery Ballroom and Mercy Lounge in Nashville’s historic Cannery Row District, is going to feature some great keynotes, like a fireside chat with Sarah Lacy, author, technology writer and founder of Pando Daily interviewing Gary Swart the founder of oDesk. The next 30 hours after that are packed full of great talks, performances, pitches and an exhibition Startup Village.

For their Startup Village, Launch Tennessee used an application and vetting process. Originally, startups that submitted had to have raised or made at least $250,000 that was quickly rescinded based on the work of startups statewide going through or just recently completing accelerator programs.

With that requirement out of the way, Launch Tennessee took a hard look at just about every state in the Southeast from Virginia to  Florida and of course as far west as Tennessee to fill the booths of the Startup Village.

Over 11 states are represented from a mix of technology spaces including social, mobile, media, health tech, ed tech, social entrepreneurship and even consumer packaged goods. Nashville had a whopping 17 startups make the startup village.
