thinkcamp-logojpgIt’s that time of year again! We are just one month away from thinkcamp 2010! We are aiming to put together an awesome list of super speakers for this year’s thinkcamp. We’ve got so many great businesses within the space and so many people who are extreme experts in their given fields and they are willing to share their knowledge with you!

thinkcamp is an annual event held a thinkspace for the thinkspace community (virtual and physical tenants alike) as well as the Redmond area. We are basically bringing together a group of 6-8 speakers who will be doing TED style presentations (18 minute presentations with 5-10 min of Q&A at the end). The presentations will be on a variety of topics that apply to small businesses and entrepreneurs (or people thinking about becoming an entrepreneur).

thinkcamp will be held on Wednesday, March 17th from 12-4pm. Refreshments and beverages will be provided.

We still have a couple of speaker slots open, so if you are interested in having a full audience’s attention and you have something useful to say, just let me know (alyssa *at* thinkspace *dot* com).

More details and a registration link will be coming soon…

Michael Brown came in last week and gave a wonderful presentation on how he started his company and the things that they have done to keep their business going strong. He has had a lot of experience with starting up companies and is currently the owner and CEO of Affirma Consulting, a 25 person award winning Microsoft Technology Consulting firm with specialization in SharePoint, Business Intelligence and high-end custom development.

Watch Michael’s presentation below to see what had attendees say, “This has been thinkspace’s best presentation yet!” “What a story!” and “Michael was a great speaker, very engaging. I learned a ton!”
