Thursday, January 31 - 4:00pm
Featuring keynote address by John Sculley (#asksculley)

This is your only chance to see these Startups before they take the world by storm – or their ideas fizzle. At the same time, strengthen relationships with your own colleagues and enjoy a fun evening. Come participate in an evening of entrepreneurial spirit – anchored by an unforgettable presentation by a pioneer in American business, John Sculley. As president of Pepsi, Sculley revolutionized the marketing of consumer goods when he introduced the Pepsi Challenge.

This year's startup presenters will then face intense scrutiny from you – along with a panel of judges – that will guide them and help determine if their path is just, and if their ideas will captivate or disappoint. Watch them pitch their concepts and try to convince you that you are witnessing the birth of the next amazing technology.

Engage with colleagues as you share in an evening where some of today's boldest entrepreneurs put their ideas – and perhaps their life savings – to the test.

Judging Panel: Craig Walker, CEO- Firespotter Labs, Jeff Uphues, Vice President - Cbeyond, Gerry Dehaven, Senior Partner - QAdvisors, Gary Pudles, CEO - AnswerNet (Moderator)
