Big Things Ahead: The Startup Conference


We thought it was big when Nibletz, the digital media startup that serves as “the voice of startups everywhere else,” officially moved their HQ to Memphis as announced at our season launch party in August. But today Nibletz officially publicized details around their inaugural The Startup Conference to be held at The Peabody Hotel on February 10-12, 2013.

And it’s huge.

Huge for startup culture, for our own entrepreneurial ecosystem and for Memphis, as 1000+ entrepreneurs, angels, VCs and startup media outlets converge in our city for a conference that will feature over 30 panels, keynote addresses, roundtable and fireside chats geared towards the challenges that entrepreneurs, startups and even investors face outside Silicon Valley. The conference will also include three signature networking events as well as a three day startup exhibition featuring 100 startups from “everywhere else.” Startups from throughout the US, and as far away as Israel and Romania, have already committed to exhibit in the Startup Village.

Just how big are the speakers? Take a look at Nibletz’ video below for details. And then check out the website as Early Bird tickets of only $39 for attendees and $350 for startups in the Startup Village are available through October 31.

We’re proud to sponsor The Startup Conference, along with Baker Donelson, LaunchTennessee and Startup America. And we’ll see you at The Peabody in February!
