Square co-founder Jim McKelvey, Disruption Corporation’s Paul Singh, and Techstars’ Managing Director Nicole Glaros to keynote national conference for entrepreneurs, investors, and creatives.

Memphis, TN (PRWEB) March 12, 2014

The third Everywhere Else conference is headed back to Memphis on April 30-May 2. The conference will be held at 409 South Main Gallery in the city’s historic arts district.

Last year’s Everywhere Else Memphis conference was named one of Forbes’ “Must Attend Conferences for Entrepreneurs.

Speakers headlining the national startup conference include:

  •     Jim McKelvey--Co-founder at Square, General Partner at Cultivation Capital
  •     Paul Singh--Founder at Disruption Corporations and Crystal Tech Fund, Partner at 500 Startups
  •     Nicole Glaros--Managing Director, Techstars

These speakers along with 25+ nationally recognized startup experts offer conference goers unique access to their experience and knowledge. In addition to world class speakers, Startup Avenue is back with the first annual Startup Showdown. Startup Avenue will host 10 of the most promising startups in the country, allowing them a chance to showcase their products and services for attendees and investors. Alums of the Startup Avenue have gone on to raise $35 million in the last year alone.

The Startup Showdown will pit these companies in a pitch competition judged by investors and startup experts. The winner will walk away as the Heavyweight Startup Champion of Everywhere Else.

"The mission of the Everywhere Else series is to help entrepreneurs get the education, connections, and inspiration they need to succeed outside Silicon Valley,” said Nick Tippmann, Cofounder/CEO of Nibletz Media, the company behind the conference. "We also look to invigorate the local startup community, which shouldn't be hard in an active city like Memphis."
