Frank asked me to speak about my life and all the startups i’m so addicted to… well.. starting.
TECH cocktail is hosting its second conference, the Startup Mixology Conference, on Thursday, October 28, 2010 in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois.
Our first conference, held in May 2008, had an amazing speaker line-up and received great feedback, so we thought we’d give it another go! This newly revitalized format will provide a small group of attendees with a powerful day of learning from experienced entrepreneurs. Participants will hear some of the best in the industry talk about the little things that can make all the difference, share their successes and more importantly, their failures, and provide their own case studies from you to learn from and be inspired by.
The Conference Venue
We are excited to be using the newly remodeled Lincoln Hall as the venue for the conference. With its state-of-the-art sound and video systems, full kitchen, three stocked bars and spectacular music hall stage, Lincoln Hall is perfect for a comfortable and intimate setting for us to get down to business.
Lincoln Hall is just a few blocks from the Fullerton CTA “L” Stop. They also offers parking for only $6 at the Children’s Memorial Hospital just down the street at 2316 N. Lincoln Avenue. Additionally, there is metered street parking but we’d only suggest this option if you are feeling lucky and have lots of quarters.
The Startup Mixer Venue
After the full day conference we will be hosting our classic startup mixer event just north of Lincoln Park in the Wrigleyville neighborhood at John Barleycorn Wrigleyville from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. This event will follow our traditional startup mixer format as we will offer several local startups free demo space to showoff in an expo-style. It will be free for conference attendees and $10-$20 for non-Conference attendees (includes a couple of drinks).
