Event Details


We have landed a big green dinosaur for our May 30th speaker.

Joe Colopy is the co-founder of Bronto Software.

Joe and his cofounder put $10,000 of their own money to start Bronto.

They had offers to bring in investor capital but chose to retain the equity.

13 years later, they sold Bronto for $200 million to NetSuite which was then acquired by Oracle.

Joe has now become an angel investor and also started a new company.


Joe is also the founder of tech startup newsletter GrepBeat.com which has been nice enough to announce some of our events with NEW, 1 Million Cups RTP and Bunker Labs.
