SCV Startup #6: An Evening with Brad Feld: Make Your Startup A Rock Star

  • Apr 11, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

UPDATE: The event is now full. If you want to go, get on the Wait List. Email Brian at [masked]. I suggest you show up just in case we have an opening.

The rumors are true. We announced it last night at SCV Startup #5... Brad Feld is coming to Valencia to speak to SCV Startup. As a successful entrepreneur, investor, creator of the Tech Stars Accelerator, and best-selling author he is one of the most sought after speakers in High Tech. 

Brad will tell us what sets the successful ventures apart from the rest and how to make your startup a Rock Star! He'll tell us what he looks for when building his team, investing in a company or entrepreneur and how to determine which startups will succeed and which ones will not. 

Brad will also tell us how we can emulate the amazing success "Tech Stars" had in Boulder, right here in Santa Clarita (Awesome Town!). 

YOU MUST RSVP FOR THIS EVENT. There will be limited seating so I suggest you RSVP ASAP. 

Brad Feld: Brad has been an early stage investor and entrepreneur for over twenty years. Prior to co-founding Foundry Group, he co-founded Mobius Venture Capital and, prior to that, founded Intensity Ventures, a company that helped launch and operate software companies. Brad is also a co-founder of TechStars.

Brad currently serves on the board of directors of BigDoorCheezburger NetworksFitbitGnipMakerBotOblongOrbotix, and Standing Cloud for Foundry Group. Previously, Brad served as chief technology officer of AmeriData Technologies. AmeriData acquired Feld Technologies, a firm he founded in 1987 that specialized in custom software applications. Brad had grown Feld Technologies into one of Boston’s leading software consulting firms prior to the acquisition. He also directed the diversification into software consulting at AmeriData, a $1.5 billion publicly-traded company which was acquired by GE Capital in 1995. more

    Phenomenal! Erick Arndt of Timeshare Juice and SCV MeetUp and Jim Armstrong of Clearstone Venture Partners put on a fantastic event with Brad Feld of Foundry Group and TechStars fame. No VC or male ego here. Brad is intelligent, insightful and passionate about entrepreneurs. His advice was a simple, constructive narrative from years of experience as an entrepreneur and investor. While we hear other Angel/VC's advise us NOT to love our product - completely ass backwards for product creators - Brad preaches the opposite - LOVE your product and nurture the hell out of it and the money will come. I'm excited to be a part of the SCV Startup community!

    Awesome insight from Brad! Not just a cheerleader speech but actual advice on what makes or breaks a startup idea. Emphasized the importance of community (SCV) and obsession for what you do. Very inspiring. And complementary sushi + wine to follow? If this event had any more class it would require a fancy hat for entrance.

    The excitement level was fantastic. Hearing Brad's perspective on what makes the great startups and entrepreneurs great was really helpful. And hearing the ingredients that we need here locally to reproduce and even surpass the achievements of Tech Stars got the room really excited. Great things continue to happen here in SC.
