HyperCamp. You don’t have to be a geek, just a blogger. Bring your laptop. A long table, lots of connectivity, soft drinks, fast food, and get this—if you have a story you want to tell, a product you want to announce, an idea you want to pitch, at each end of the room there are presentation stations, with 15 chairs in front, a podium and projector. You sign up to brief. Any blogger who wants to listen can, or not; their choice
HyperCamp is a great idea. At TorCamp one of the ideas about building community was to provide a hype engine or a product review engine using the "camp" format. HyperCamp allows the network to decide what is interesting, cool, etc. The people provide the filter, i.e., good ideas, interesting products, compelling stories, etc., get talked about. Perfect.
I have concerns that this format will work as wll for MoneyCamp . Conferences like DEMO , Canadian Venture Fair, Toronto Venture Group’s Angel Forum do a pretty good job of introducing early-stage companies to funding sources. They vet both sides of the equation to ensure quality.
“Bridging the Gap Between Entrepreneurs and Captial”, VentureFair offers the highest standards in the business.
- How does MoneyCamp ensure value to entrepreneurs and investors?
- Do we need to screen potential investors and entrepreneurs?
- How would you do the screening? Social capital? Dollars invested? Previous exit valuations? What?
- Does it matter?
- Is this different than other forums? business plan competitions?
It’s worth trying, but I am still skeptical about the value without more structure.
