VLAB is kicking off its 2007 season by presenting some of Silicon Valleyâ€™s youngest and brightest entrepreneurs. Come join us for an evening where we put the spotlight on these young entrepreneurs to reveal the facts and dispel the myths behind the makings of hot startups and young moguls. Whether youâ€™re interested in becoming the next baby billionaire or would like to hear some sage advice from this group of go-getters, this VLAB event promises to provide an evening of insightful and inventive dialogue.
Our moderator Ram Shriram will quiz the panelists about what it takes to not only create the right buzz for their products and companies, but also to secure the funding and build upon it. Seth Sternberg of Meebo and Zaw Thet of 4INFO have had great success in starting and growing their online startups; both are familiar faces of the Web 2.0 movement. Roelof Botha of Sequoia Capital and Alicia Morga of Consorte Media are seasoned professionals in the online internet space with experience as both startup executives and venture capitalists with top tier firms.
