If you’re a startup working on mobile, cloud, data analytics, or social technologies and you want to get noticed by consumer-financial-tools giant Intuit, you’ve got three days to apply to join a day of “speed dating” sessions coming up at Intuit headquarters in Mountain View, CA, on October 6.
Intuit says its annual Entrepreneur Day will bring together about 30 startups for meetings and demos with business leaders at Intuit, including founder Scott Cook, CEO Brad Smith, and chief technology officer Tayloe Stansbury. Basically, the company is looking for the next Mint.com or PayCycle to partner with and/or acquire, according to company representatives.
“Entrepreneurs with mobile, cloud computing, data analytics and social technology should find a number of interesting ways to connect with Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks, Quicken and TurboTax,” the company said in a statement. “The opportunity to collaborate with Intuit could help startups get to that next step on their way to becoming a high growth company.”
