For the good part of 2 years, we have been a relatively unknown, but with startups like RoboCent, Vinylmint and GM Engineering Services receiving national press and building kickass startups, we wanted to bring some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country to Norfolk-Virginia Beach to show them how diverse and successful our community has become."
Drop Anchor will bring together speakers of many verticals, Erika Napoletano, author of the Power of the Unpopular, Scott Case, CEO of Startup America Partnership, Thor Muller, Co-Founder of Get Satisfaction and Founder of Origin.al.
Attendees will have two full days to meet and greet with talent from all across the United States, from showcasing the Norfok-Virginia Beach's best entrepreneurs, startups and technologies, to a dozen speakers telling their stories and inspiration.
