This is not an official LVDev event, though LVDev is promoting/sponsoring. This is the first of a monthly series that will take place the second week of every month in downtown Las Vegas.
It's also not a technical event per se, but aimed at entrepreneurs. It runs from tonight through Friday night; the highlight should be Friday's event, Vegas Startup Showcase.
