The work of OTEF is almost entirely funded by the Arizona Entrepreneurship Conferences.
The keynote speaker this year is Robert Scoble of Rackspace, renowned tech evangelist, blogger, and champion of entrepreneurs. He will be joined at the conference by Bill Reichert, Managing Partner at Garage Technology Ventures. Local entrepreneurial heavyweights Matthew Pittinsky, CEO of Parchment, Jeff Pruitt (Tallwave), Mark Rukavina (iMemories), Alex Brigham (Corpedia), Clate Mask (Infusionsoft), Jan Ziff (Heckerty), Bart Steiner (Bulbstorm) and many others will also share insights.
And we will bring you the latest updates on Crowdfunding!
The conferences always sell out, so sign up early and save your spot.
What are we doing? This year, OTEF has begin a series of new initiatives to help disadvantaged entrepreneurs. We worked with the Halle Foundation to help a domestic violence victim ramp up her business.
We are working with a new not-for-profit that teaches art to the autistic, and we are still doing individual counseling and mentoring for disadvantaged would-be entrepreneurs through Gangplank.
