"The Rise of Mediapreneurship"­ w/ David Siteman Garland + CI Showcase

For our April meetup, we are excited to welcome online media guru David Siteman Garland (host of the "The Rise to the Top"), plus startups from Capital Innovators!

To start things off, we'll have a quick visit from the members of the current semester of Capital Innovators startup accelerator. Each startup will give a quick 60 second pitch, and then share some of the wisdom they've learned during the program. This should be a great chance for them to practice pitching, and for us to see examples of startups that have reached the next level.

Then we'll have our featured presentation by David Siteman Garland. Since 2008, David has been producing an web show for online entrepreneurs called "The Rise to the Top". Over this time he has specialized in teaching "mediapreneurship" - the art and science of turning online content into a real business. David will be giving a talk called "The Rise of Mediapreneurship: The Kind of Entrepreneurship Not Taught in School" - explaining this movement and sharing how entrepreneurs can use video and blogging to grow their audience (and their bank balance!).

    Hey all! I wish I could have been there last night. I had just gotten in from LAX after you started. My company BidRazor is in this current class of Capital Innovators. Hopefully you learned a lot from all my great class mates. I know DSG did an outstanding job as he always does!
