Seattle “Tech-N-Tell” launches for startup demos

Less than a week after he quit Conceivian, Seattle startup impresario Marcelo Calbucci is launching something new.

Calbucci’s Seattle 2.0 startup news organization has started a new event series called Seattle Tech-N-Tell, featuring six startups at a time demonstrating their products on a stage. The first one begins at 5:45 on Feb. 22 at The Crocodile in Belltown.

Calbucci, a Microsoft veteran, started Seattle 2.0 and the late social/family network service Sampa before joining Seattle startup lab Conceivian. He left Conceivian last week, telling his Twitter followers he’s “looking to build my next startup.”

Tech-N-Tell is not Calbucci’s next gig. “It’s just something I’m doing because I see a gap on ways for tech entrepreneurs to showcase their products and I thought I coudl help,” he said via e-mail.

If you’re going to attend, dream up a startup idea before registering, if you don’t already have one in your back pocket.

Tickets are $25 for startup founders, “pre-entrepreneurs,” job-seekers and “startupers.” Investor types and service providers are charged $45, which is also what “others” must pay to attend. Students are charged $15.

There is no charge for startups to present. More details are at the Seattle 2.0 site.
