Silicon Valley comes to Cambridge

Last week we had a dozen or so top entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley come to Cambridge. It was a real eye opener - in terms of seeing what and how business is being done in Silicon Valley. All the talk was about web 2.0 and manyspeakers referred to "faith and belief" in terms of making money! So - the question is - how many of todays start-ups in this "space" willa ctually succeed and will investors do it all again - have they already forgotten the dot com bubble?

Whatever happens the revolution is here and exciting!

As an educator the question is - what should we be teaching future entrepreneurs about how to gerenate the ideas and evetually monetise the ideas in this virtual world?

Great to see this. We've been doing similar things in Edinburgh.

Those looking for more web 2.0 action may also be interested in BarCamp.

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. Participants drive the event. Its free & open to all.
