Everywhere Else Cincinnati
The start date of the second Everywhere Else Conference, is rapidly approaching. Kicking off on the 29th of September, EE has become one of the largest events focused solely on startups outside of the valley. EE Cincinnati, hosted by the Nibletz Team, is built around the theme, “Start Where You Are.” The keynotes, round tables, panels, and workshops will all focus on, in one way or another, why you don’t have to move to the valley or New York to launch a startup.
If the second installment of Everywhere Else is even 1/10th as successful as the first, it is a must attend for startups, entrepreneurs, designers, developers, VC and angel firms. More than 60 startups will be displaying their products at the Startup Village, and the most promising will compete in a pitch competition judged by investors and entrepreneurs.
EE Cincinnati also – It is hard to imagine by coincidence – coincides with a monumental month for technology and design within Cincinnati. Cincinnati Design Week (9/30-10/5) overlaps with EE, and on October 2nd, The Brandery – one of the top US seed-stage accelerators – is holding its demo day. What’s more, Cincinnati is home to many resources for startups and entrepreneurs: ezone – a huge economic development organization serving and mentoring startups and larger businesses; UpTech – an accelerator affiliated with Northern Kentucky University, and several regional economic development agencies; CincyTech – a public-private seed-stage investor; Cintrifuse – a Cincinnati-based accelerator and CoWorking space.
All said, this is a must-attend event for startups and entrepreneurs. With more than 30 great speakers, and 60+ startups presenting their products, and countless investors in attendance, this is great opportunity to pitch your idea or demo your product, or just get some ideas or inspiration.
Just look at what people said of the 1st EE, named by Forbes as one of the Must-Attend 2013 Conferences for Entrepreneurs:
This conference is pretty much going to be one of the biggest startup events of the year, and probably one of the few events big enough to rival the infamously crazy SXSW conference held in Austin, TX.
