Birds of a feather flock together. Formerly known as the ERT (Entrepreneurs RoundTable), We have a lot of energy, abundant of passion and enthusiasm in this genuinely peer-to-peer sharing and learning community. Don't come in as a salesman just to pitch. If you do, you'll be disliked instantly. The philosophy applies as follows. We believe that entrepreneurs deserve more than just 30 seconds or 3 min. to tell their story of their ideas and the product out of their love of technologies, sleepless nights and showerless days! Based in Silicon Valley, we meet every month gathering startup founders/geeks with more focus on social apps, to genuinely share ideas, technical expertise, business experiences, to vent on the platform guys for keep changing their policies, and of course to network. Different from other tech events, at our events, each entrepreneur is given spot light, either as speaker to demo or as participant. Our live demos are for the real internet products. Our speakers usually talk shop about the technologies of their products and share their entrepreneurial experiences - whether good or bad. We welcome entrepreneurs and geeks to join, so long as you are genuinely willing to share your experiences and knowledge too. Our events have become one of the top 5 Silicon Valley best events, due to its well delivered no-nonsense content, high quality speakers as well as participants that have made the deeper networking and bonding among its thousands of attendees. 800 Birds is a Silicon Valley phenomenon indeed!!
