I'll be going to the Entrepreneur University (EU) this Thursday. This event is organized by the Northwest Entrepreneur University (NWEN) every year and I attended the last 2 years. They used to be at the University of Washington, but this year it will be on the Sheraton Hotel in Seattle.
Of all the training, seminars, classes, breakfast meetings, and talks that I ever attended, the EU is by far the best. It is full of entrepreneurs, the presenters are fantistic people (most of them) from all realms of expertise to make an entrepreneur succeed. I end up meeting interesting people and you can always find a familiar face. Usually somebody from MSFT that is thinking about leaving. :)
This year presenters include Pete Higgins (2nd Ave. Partners), Jon Roberts (Ignition Partners), Craig Sherman (Wilson Sonsini) -- BTW, Craig is Sampa's lawyer, Jim Sinegal (Costco's CEO), and a few others.
The interesting (maybe obvious) thing is that you never know which presenters will be good or bad. Their status, years of experience, position, wealth and other factors are not indication of how good they are at giving a talk.
Well, I'll be there from 7AM until 8PM, so if you see a guy handing out free business cards that is me (or somebody else).
