Workbar Sponsored: These seasoned entrepreneurs take the stage for seven minutes each, sharing stories of how they built their companies and what they wished they could have avoided in retrospect. From public failures to private headaches, expensive mistakes to time-wasting partnerships, these tales from the trenches will not only be educational and thought provoking, but will give audience members a glimpse into someone else’s journey in a way that otherwise would be impossible to know. Think TED talks – but shorter!

Come be part of a great debate where area entrepreneurial and tech communities verbally duke-it-out on timely issues. Why? To hash things out in public, build some awareness, raise some money for good causes and of-course have some fun! Debate #1: SEC regulations should require that, in order to go public or remain publicly-traded, U.S. companies will need to have a majority of women on their boards of directors. Women are today under-represented on corporate boards. (When Twitter went public in 2013, it had zero women on its seven member board.) Yet a majority of the U.S. population are women, and according to the Boston Consulting Group, American women control 73 percent of household spending. Public companies would greatly benefit from having a majority of their board members be women, and the government should pass legislation requiring all public companies achieve that goal.

Hosted Event: Join us to unveil Linkapedia in Boston! As part of a multi-city tour, we welcome people to test out, demo and explore our stealth mode discovery engine. Now there’s a GPS for the internet. Over 95% of the world is now connected by cell phones. We are building the Linkapedia and a companion social site called “the interest place” to enable curiosity driven learning outside normal educational institutions. We also believe there is more than test scores in life. What if the teens of the world were truly connected through every area of interest as well as academic subjects? Well soon they can be. Drinks and appetizers provide.
