Wow! What a night!
I want to offer up a BIG THANKS to everyone who joined us on Wednesday to celebrate our 4th year anniversary! How thrilling it is to be surrounded by high style, cool tech and great people!
It’s hard to believe we’ve evolved from a meetup of 8 geeks in a bar to a constant barrage of awesome standing-room-only events.
Have you seen the list of companies who’ve jumped on stage with us over the years? Like 200+ of ’em. Check them out (and rate them!) here.
I’m really looking forward to jumping into year number 5 with y’all! Like maybe as early as May 5th when we take another deep dive in to mobile tech, Cinqo de Mayo style? Or perhaps when the Belgians take to the stage on May 18th? Tickets will go on sale soon. Stay tuned for discount codes! 🙂
OK, without further ado, here are some nifty links from Wednesday’s SF New Tech…Enjoy!
* So, Zuumer, Citizen Effect, Collaborize, Threadbox, Task Squid, Encoding.com, Apture .. who was the crowd favorite? Not so much? See the charts!
* Who jumped on stage and why for 60 second spots?
* More awesome photos . . . !

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Inagural BizSessions 1.0.
It was a packed house with a mixed audience of techies, entrepreneurs and VC’s. A successful and educational event, filled with great panelists and good conversations.
The topic of the evening was: VC FTW or WTF? or Funding models for cash-starved times.
