Start Me Up and Never Stop
Do you dream of start-up success? Do you want to rake in so much venture capital that you become completely out of touch with the average American, buy your high school crush’s affection, and build a castle in Silicon Valley? You can live your wildest tech fantasies at Start-Up City, a blowout designed to maximize the entrepreneurial escapades of South Florida techies. Gifting the masses with their start-up savvy will be Y Combinator president Sam Altman, 8tracks founder David Porter, Endeavor Miami’s Laura Maydón, and plenty of other heavyweights. Expect a daylong geek-fest including panel discussions, headline interviews, and keynote case studies from innovators, experts, and people who know a lot more than you do. Forget Northern Cali — Miami could be the next big thing. So this is the time to maximize those budding opportunities and find yourself an angel investor, stat. That custom-built, diamond-accented matte-black Maserati ain’t gonna buy itself. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at the New World Center, 500 17th St., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $75.
