The Founder Showcase is TheFunded.com's quarterly startup pitch and networking event, which gathers over 300 investors, founders, and seed-stage companies in Silicon Valley to hear talks from leading CEOs, and help launch a promising startup to greatness.
The 11th Founder Showcase event is now scheduled for Wednesday, July 25th at the Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus in Mountain View, CA. Reduced-Price tickets are available until Friday, June 15th: Purchase your tickets today.
Confirmed as our first Keynote Speaker is Aaron Levie, Co-Founder & CEO of Box. Aaron is one of today's most impressive young entrepreneurs, having spoken at other events such as Web 2.0, SXSW, and more. Aaron originally created Box as a college business project from his dorm room in 2005, and since then has raised nearly $160 million in venture capital, and has secured more than 8 million customers using its secure cloud content management and collaboration tools. We look forward to hearing his story on stage at the event.
