Social Media is here. Facebook has 300 million members. Youtube is the second largest search engine in the world. Twitter is approaching 50 million tweets a day.

Companies large and small are embracing social media to help get the word out, connect with customers, and provide another way to reach customer service. Comcast is turning its image around largely due to its Twitter account for customer support (@ComcastCares). This year Pepsi decided not to air any Super Bowl ads in favor of their Social Media campaigns. A Portland food-cart, Whiffies, does nearly all of its marketing on Twitter and is expanding to Seattle.

Wearables: The future is now
Ziba Design - Auditorium

In early 2012, Nike introduced FuelBand and Google announced its Glass Project — two events that shined a spotlight on the growing category of Wearable Technology. In the months since, the global design and business community has exploded with speculation on the potential of embedded computing. But they’ve left many questions unanswered: How will wearable technology fit into our daily lives? Is it a passing trend, or the future of computing? Will these kinds of devices bring people closer together, or add to the distractions that battle for our attention?

What’s clear is that computers will radically transform over the next five years, from devices we carry to integrated parts of our outfits and bodies, that we use almost without thinking. It’s a shift that will transform markets, and challenge our definition of beauty. Please join us for a talk with local experts, as they discuss their challenges and successes, and explore what the future holds in this exciting field.

To save your seat, please register for this event on Eventbrite

TiE Panel: Founders' Funding Stories
TiE Pearl Incubator

We often see headlines like these:

  • "Verizon Investments Leads Funding Round in MobileRQ"
  • "OpenSesame Lands $8M"
  • "OnTheGo Raises 700K Seed Funding from Foundry Group's AngelList Syndicate"
  • "AppThwack gets backing from In-Q-Tel"

If you are an entrepreneur pitching at pitch competitions and to groups of investors, an outcome like that can often seem like a pipe dream. You might think it's just a question of luck, or that you just have to have a lot of passion for your idea; but it takes the right combination of factors to make such deals happen.

The basic premise is obvious: investors want a return on their investment. But how do you get introduced to the right investor for your company? What is going to convince them that they will get a return on the investment? How do you negotiate the deal?

One great way to get answers to some of these questions is by hearing the stories of founders who have received funding in the last 6 months.

Join us for a panel discussion on closing a round of funding with the founders of the very same companies that featured in the headlines above! Don't miss this opportunity to learn from these entrepreneurs' experience and meet and ask them your questions!

Our panelists are

  • Tyler McKinley (CEO/Founder of MobileRQ,
  • Josh Blank (SVP/Founder of OpenSesame),
  • Ryan Fink (CEO/Founder of OnTheGo Platforms),
  • Trent Peterson (Co-Founder of AppThwack)

The discussion will be moderated by Monica Enand (Founder/CEO of Zapproved, TiE Charter Member).
