The Day of Fosterly
Not your average conference, The Day of Foster.ly is more than eight hours of collaborative learning for anyone interested in starting, growing, or exiting a company. You'll leave with hands on experience, knowledge and relationships.
DURING THE DAY
Interested in resources to help you start, grow or exit your business? You're in luck. The expo will provide you with the information you need to do just that, as well as provide you with information about the many higher education offerings in the area. Interested in a table at an expo?
***Panels, Chats & Demos***
Taking place in the Dome Theater, we'll have a series of panels, talks by experienced entrepreneurs, and demos. For more information, visit the People page. Want a reserved seat for the keynote? Make sure to register as a gold tier attendee.
Springboard Enterprises' Dolphin Tank™
Unlike ABC's Shark Tank or the British Dragon's Den, when you are in the Dolphin Tank you share your ideas without the fear that the audience will tear you to shreds. Immediately after you conclude a two minute elevator pitch idea in front of four judges and a live audience, you'll receive feedback to help improve your pitch.
***Developer and Designer Job Fair***
There's no doubt that developers and designers are high in demand. To help bridge the connections between the organizations who seek them and those who have time and availability to do the work (either freelance or full time), we're holding the Developer and Designer Job Fair.
There's no charge to participate for attendees or organizations (other than your D.O.F. registration).
We recognize that getting the word out about what you're up to might be difficult. Accordingly, we're bringing in some members of the media to help you frame your stories effectively. Taking place in a three minute speed dating format, you'll have the opportunity to pitch your story to journalists who are positioned to cover them.
We're of the mindset that collaboration and learning is most effective in intimate settings. For that reason, we're offering small-sized workshops on subjects important to you, chosen by you.
For those of you who haven't had the time to update your profile pictures on your website in a while, we've partnered with Pete Waterman to help you get free professional grade headshots. Pete will be on hand for two and a half hours on a first-come first-served basis. Queue up, have a few pictures taken, and we will send you your photos with an unrestricted license.
A place for attendees to come together around around specific subject matters (including mobile and web development, marketing and PR, and more), gatherings are a great place to build relationships, hire employees and companies, and ask questions of subject matter experts.
Wrapping up the day's activities, it's time for you to grab a drink and catch up with other attendees while exploring Artisphere's facilities. As Artisphere is much more than its component parts, you'll have access to explore four distinct performance venues, three visual art galleries, a 4,000 square foot ballroom, and multiple terraces.
