It was just two short months ago that I announced on my blog that I’m co-hosting a conference called MicroConf. Well, we’ve gone through the pre-sales process, and gone through the regular sales process. Now it’s time for the final push. If you’re interested in going to MicroConf, you still have time to get there. Go to http://www.microconf.com and register.
So far, the conference has really started to come together. We’ve got a great lineup of a dozen speakers who are generally well regarded in the startup community. We’ve got a solid set of sponsors who I can’t possibly thank enough for their generous support. They are, in the order listed on the website:
- The Micropreneur Academy
- Red Gate Software
Most of these sponsors are giving away stuff, and in some cases that stuff reaches into the thousands of dollars of stuff. The conference is relatively small (as conferences go) so you stand a reasonably decent chance at winning something. Don’t expect a TV or anything like that though. We’re giving away stuff that’s going to help your business to either launch a product, or to become better situated to find more customers or serve the existing ones better. Some of them are giving away developer tools *woot*
So register today and we can have a few drinks at the Queen Victoria Pub in the Riviera.
Wait, you don’t want to pay for it? Hmmm, well I do have a couple of tickets that I can give away. So I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. Send me an email to mike at micropreneur dot com and tell me your story. Tell me who you are, what you do, and why you should get a free ticket to come to MicroConf . I’ll read all of the submissions and award the tickets I have based on those submissions. I’m not looking for sob stories. What I’m looking for is genuine interest in either launching a product or furthering your business, why you need to attend this conference, what you expect to get out of it, and whether you’ve already registered or not.
In a nutshell, that’s it. And for those of you who want to go but are afraid to register in the hopes that you might win, go ahead and register. If you win and are already registered, I’ll refund your money. I haven’t decided yet, but I may look more favorably on people who have already registered, since I’ll know that you’re serious about going.
That’s about it. Good luck everyone!
