We are happy to announce yet another great Founder Showcase Keynote Speaker: Michael Arrington. In addition to founding TechCrunch and being one of the 'World's 100 Most Influential People' (according to Time Magazine), Mike has also been an active angel investor since 2006. His new CrunchFund is backed by a list of impressive investors, including Accel Partners, Sequoia Capital, the founding partners of Andreessen Horowitz, Ron Conway, Yuri Milner, Kevin Rose, and more. We are really looking forward to his talk, because if there is anyone who has their hand on the pulse of Silicon Valley, it's Michael Arrington.
The 8th Showcase is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8th, in San Francisco. We are offering a 20% discount to TheFunded readers - just use the code 'TFmembers' at http://foundershowcase.com/tickets. Reduced price tickets are available until October 16th.
