STIRR Event Tonight in Palo Alto

Tonight I’m attending the STIRR event in Palo Alto, where 5 emerging companies will present on stage to a room full of 240+ entrepreneurs. STIRR.net is an emerging technology network who’s goal is to catalyze entrepreneurial activity in the SF Bay Area and beyond.

There will be 5 early stage companies presenting on-stage at 7:30pm. STIRR is unique because it forces the companies to truly master the art of the elevator pitch, having only 60 seconds or less to pitch their company and value proposition.

Tonight’s line-up includes:
Loomia, David Marks, CEO
Mozes, Dorrian Porter, CEO
RadioHandi, Brian McConnell, Founder
Sphere, Tony Conrad, CEO
SwapThing, Jessica Hardwick, CEO

STIRR Mixers are a blend of tech-social mixer with a forum for entrepreneurs from in-progress and recently-launched startups to present new products and services to their peers. Judging by the RSVP list, it seems that indeed a sampling of the Silicon Valley 2.0 ecosystem responsible for tomorrow’s innovation.

I’ll report more after this evening’s event.
