Calbucci moves to Startup 3.0

Marcelo Calbucci, a former Microsoft developer turned startup impresario, has found a new job.

He announced today that he’s now “chief startup officer” at Conceivian, a Redmond “startup lab” that’s building and operating startups. Led by veterans of Microsoft and other large tech companies, the venture is working with seven startups and hopes to bring 100 to market over the next 10 years.

Calbucci ran a family-oriented social networking service called Sampa from 2007 to 2009 and started the Seattle 2.0 news site for Web startups.

Last year Calbucci began working on an idea for a consumer product but couldn’t get funding and shelved the project in April. After he updated his LinkedIn profile, Conceivian Chief Executive Saqib Rasool approached him in June and Calbucci joined in August.

In his announcement, Calbucci said he’s “very excited about the opportunity in helping investors and entrepreneurs to make their business a reality.”
