Your Golden Ticket to the Nantucket Conference

We've put together a pretty solid agenda for this May's Nantucket Conference, and the event is just about sold out. This is our tenth year doing the event (I've been on the advisory board since we started planning the first one, in 1999), and it seems like it'll be a great mix of fresh faces and veterans.

If you are a first-time entrepreneur and would like to attend the event, Highland Capital Partners is offering one pass to attend this year’s conference (April 30th - May 2nd) at no charge.

[ Update: Congrats to Chuck Goldman of Apperian, who won the pass. ]

To be considered for the complimentary conference pass, you must be a first time founder/CEO of a New England-based company. Also, you must be committed to attending at least two days of the conference if you are selected. In addition, Highland is asking all applicants to help bring their Summer@Highland program to the attention of a university-affiliated entrepreneur or start-up that could possibly benefit from participation in that program.

If selected, you’ll receive a complimentary ticket to attend the conference ($1,950 value). Note: you will be responsible for your own travel and lodging.

If you’d like to be considered for this opportunity, send a short blurb on your company (name, brief description, number of employees, URL) along with a paragraph on why you’d like to attend this year’s conference to The deadline for being considered for the complimentary Nantucket Conference ticket is Wednesday, April 8, 2009. Highland will notify the recipient by April 9th.

The agenda and attendee list looks great. There is alot of innovation going on in New England. This will be a good session to share this and to collaborate on how we do more going forward.

Scott - I could not be more excited to be heading out to my first Nantucket Conference. Kudos to you and the team on what looks to be a great couple of days!

Kudos also to HCP - love the golden ticket idea. As a first time entrepreneur, I think the opportunity to connect with a world class group of people like this will go a long way for whoever gets to go.

I have heard about this conference previously and would like to attend some year in the future - especially with my ties to Nantucket. However, not sure HCP is the one to get Kudos for the Golden Ticket Idea...
