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.
