Entrepreneur College - That Time of Year Again!


I've been getting some emails from Wilson Sonsini (WSGR) about their entrepreneur college. I attended last year and was happy with the sessions I attended. I picked and chose what was relevant to me because some of their sessions would have been useless. I've been learning more and more how precious my time is and how it's easy to get distracted from the task at hand. I think that's especially true for entrepreneurs. Anyhow, here's the link to RSVP. Also, Mario Rosati will be headlining the first session. I had him as a teacher at Haas - he's engaging and has a ton of experience to lend to whatever discussion he's giving. This one is on valuation.

Also - the program is available around the country (Austin, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Palo Alto, and DC)

Here's what WSG&R says about their program:

"Given the current economic landscape, entrepreneurs are forced to make many tough decisions and to do more with less. However, innovation is as important as ever, and entrepreneurs will play an increasingly critical role in bringing new technologies and services to the market. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati remains committed to helping entrepreneurs navigate this shifting economic landscape and adapt to new realities. We are proud to present the Entrepreneurs College, dedicated to providing entrepreneurs with the information, opportunities, and network needed to achieve success in these challenging times.

This program includes a series of seminars and networking events covering a wide range of topics to help you focus your ideas and business strategies and runs semi-weekly over the course of 17 weeks. Since its launch, the Entrepreneurs College has met with great success, bringing together hundreds of entrepreneurs to form the beginning of a dynamic and diverse leadership community.

The Entrepreneurs College is exclusive to entrepreneurs and start-up company executives in the Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati network. You will benefit from the largest network in the country of leaders in entrepreneurship, venture capital, angel organizations, and other finance and advisory firms.

Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati was built upon the foundation of entrepreneurship. Our commitment to the entrepreneur and venture capital community spans over four decades, during which time we have played an integral role in the creation of many of today’s groundbreaking industries. We are equally excited about the future, and look forward to joining you on the journey that lies ahead."

Very useful information, thanks a lot. Gives us chance for comparing. Seems like this program has a lot of perks and I think it can do a great good for entrepreneurs. And the fact that this program is available around the country makes it even better. Thanks a lot.
