Entrepreneurship Events -- May

Upcoming in May, two events of note for local entrepreneurs and the technology community:

First, the long-planned entrepreneurs "mash-up" sponsored by PUMP, IW, HELP, and a bunch of other groups will finally happen on Tuesday, May 9, starting at 6 pm and going to whenever. The place: Heinz 57 Conference Center, Stanwix & Sixth Street, Downtown. It's free, and "refreshments" are provided, but registration is requested via www.pump.org/eventReg.jsp. If you'd like a full-size version of the flyer in the image, let me know by email. (And yes, I'll be there.)

Second, Innovation Works is having a party for itself and its partners, in Lawerenceville, on Thursday evening, May 9 May 4. So far as I know, this is an invitation-only event, but it's worth drawing attention to anyway. IW has taken some heat over the last few years over claims that it's been part of the local high tech/investing problem, not part of the solution. The management team there is acutely aware of that perception and is working hard to change it, both by changing what IW actually does (expanding the range of services and support that it offers) and by changing how IW is perceived (trying to play well with others). It may or may not be too soon to tell whether the efforts are paying off. I'll be interested to hear how the event plays to IW's business, government, and university audiences.
