CommonAngels, NEVCA Pledge 50 Startup Tickets for XSITE on June 14
We’re still two months out from our full-day flagship forum XSITE, the Xconomy Summit on Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship, but CommonAngels and the New England Venture Capital Association have already pledged to buy 50 tickets together—25 each—for startups looking to attend the June 14 conference.
“We are thrilled to be able to support entrepreneurs in this way—XSITE has become a must-attend event on the innovation economy,” says Chris Sheehan, managing director of CommonAngels, which is also Xconomy’s lead investor. This year’s edition, themed Accelerating Innovation, features speakers like Uber and StumbleUpon co-founder Garrett Camp, Birchbox co-founder Katia Beauchamp, Evernote CEO Phil Libin, and PayPal chief scientist Mok Oh. You’ll also hear from a variety of local academics, investors, and cleantech, Web, and healthtech entrepreneurs.
Speaking of entrepreneurs, last year Xconomy registered more than 100 attendees from startups–and we hope to easily exceed that this year. CommonAngels and the NEVCA will take care of distributing most of their 50 tickets to people in their networks. “We’re committed to ensuring that Boston remains the best city in the U.S. for starting and growing new companies,” says C.A. Webb, executive director of the New England Venture Capital Association. “Gatherings like this summit are critical for helping us connect and support one other.”
But it’s up to Xconomy to dole out 10 of those tickets for CommonAngels. That’s where you come in. If you work at a startup and want to nab one of the lucky spots, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a bit about your company. Others interested in attending can register here.
A big thank you to NEVCA and CommonAngels.
