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.
