Memphis is playing host to the largest startup conference in the U.S., EveryWhereElse. That’s where lots of startups are going to be – so that’s where we’re going to be. South Florida has LOTS of great resources to facilitate startups, so we’re going to make sure they know it. We’re looking for great deals, killer talent, or entertainment. Sometimes we get all three!
Brown indicated the three angel investors are going to Memphis to represent South Florida and to learn what company founders are doing in other parts of the country.
“We’re hosting Pitch House to learn about and find some awesome companies and founders that we can add real value to by supporting their ventures,” he said. “…not to mention that hanging out and networking with entrepreneurs is the best.”
Nemanic promised Pitch House would be inspirational and a little bit naughty:
If you aren’t learning everyday, you’re dying. I am there to learn. Sometimes we get stuck in our ways and in our own backyards and don’t realize there is a much bigger world out there. This is the perfect event to capture a broad view of our brave new world. Of course, I expect to have a lot of fun as well, but don’t tell my wife!
The Pitch House is located on Main Street in Memphis just off Beale.
Participants must have an EveryWhereElse.co ticket or badge to get in.
