Entrepreneur University 2008

Northwest Entrepreneur Network’s Entrepreneur University 2008 is coming up in Seattle on November 6. Running a full 12 hours from 7:30-7:30 at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center, it should give new and established entrepreneurs some better ideas on how to develop, manage and grow their business through some rough waters. While the cost is a bit steep ($225 for NWEN members, $325 for non-members and then an extra $25 if you don’t pre-register), the anual event looks likt it will promise some interesting panels on funding, dealing with the competition, metrics, and customer-centrism. EU 2008 is split into two tracks, for entrepreneurs in either start-up mode or looking to accelerate growth.

Naturally there are networking sessions before, during and after the event, but NWEN is using Seattle startup Pathable’s neat networking directory to connect entrepreneurs more easily. There is also an evening reception which includes a press review of business pitches (to John Cook of TechFlask, Briar Dudley from the Seattle Times and Erin Engleman of the Puget Sound Business Journal).
