The AFTERparty at Web 2.0 Expo #w2e #Asse9
Wed night, April Fools Day, 2009
in TechCrunch, 3-31-09

Theme: Asse9 on April Fools.
You'd be Foolish Not To Come

Asse9 = "Austin Secret Society of Entrepreneurs 9". It's a secret society of entrepreneurs and all you need to know is that we are fun and we like to party. Twitter Search #Asse9

Entrepreneurs helping entrepreneurs... its powerful stuff.

Avoid foolishness by:
1) Planning to promo your start-up here
2) You don't need a badge but significant preference will be given to Web 2.0 Expo attendees.
3) Come ready to pitch as VCs will be in attendance. Or will appear if you don't suck.
4) Come ready to pitch press. I think that pretty boy that blogs at Business Week will be there.
5) Karma. For entrepreneurs, it can be tracked measured and channeled.

Email or text message the party's secretary, Larry Chiang ( /650-283-8008)
include your cell in the subject line. He likes after-Parties a lot

Start time is after the Ignite Party and Launch 2.0 Party or 11pm whichever comes later. For those that were spoon fed at GSB (the original GSB @U of Chicago), it works like this: if Launch 2.0 ends at 11:45... the after party starts at 11:46pm :-)

P.S. Crashing will be frowned upon and blogged about
P.P.S. If a VC is less than friendly or if you meet a 'Conference Donkey', tell me and I'll make 'em famous. Google "Conference Donkey" for giggles.

Entrepreneur tip #88.
Take two down the aisle. If someone changes your deal, read, "the Art of Changing the Deal" and complain smart
