Berkeleyside Local Business Forum: Startup Berkeley

Berkeleyside, Berkeley's independent news website, brings together leading figures to talk about the strengths and weaknesses of the city of Berkeley for startups and how to create a climate of innovation. Is Berkeley's reputation as a business-hostile place merited? Are things changing for the better? What steps need to be taken to improve the startup climate?

 

Speakers include:

  • Will Wright, creator of The Sims and founder of Stupid Fun Club
  • David Hyman, founder and CEO of streaming music service MOG
  • June Taylor, founder and CEO of jam maker The Still Room
  • Rauly Butler, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking for Mechanics Bank.

 

Join entrepreneurs, policy makers and local business leaders for a lively, interactive discussion. Ample time will be devoted to questions.

 

The Berkeleyside Local Business Forum 2012 is organized in partnership with Mechanics Bank, and is sponsored by GreenerPrinter.

 

Tickets: $10 ($5 for students and seniors), available through Brown Paper Tickets.
