VETCON - San Francisco

VETCON is the veteran entrepreneur conference, an annual gathering of visionaries, hustlers, and game-changers from around the world. We promote the international community of veterans who run their own businesses.
The name sounds a little silly (like ComicCon or something), but this will be a pretty cool conference with some of the top veteran leaders and entrepreneurs from across the USA.

There will be great networking, brilliant seminars and plenty of beers in the evenings.

If you're into tech, startups, entrepreneurship, etc. give it a look.

23-25 March 2017 | GSV Labs, Redwood City, CA

Some topics covered:
  • Solving - not creating - a problem
    Using testing to validate products
    Product vs Market Pivot: Find Your Business's True North
    The true context of failure
    Rapidly acquiring new customers through digital marketing
    Getting media interested in your business
    Vetting and hiring technical talent
    Integrating software into your operations
    Outsourcing operations to save time and money
    When (not) to raise outside capital
    Understanding the world of raising capital (how to detect, initiate, and secure capital)

Cost: $400-600. Admittedly, this seems a bit high for 2-3 days, but space/etc isn't free.

Note: I'm not involved with this, just sharing the info for anyone who may be interested.
