BlogHer Conference Update - - March 17, 2012

BlogHer Original Post

Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend, I hope everyone enjoys a day without little pinches, in other words, wear green! I could go on and on about St. Patrick's Day but there is so much to cover here!

BlogHer Entrepreneurs '12 is less than a week away and the agenda is packed with networking, mentoring, and lots of learning. In addition to amazing speakers, we have lined up sponsors who are ready to help you take your business idea to the next level.

And in case you have missed some of the great posts surrounding BlogHer Entrepreneurs, here they are for your convenience:

Interview: A Successful Year for Entrepreneur Cynthia Liu. Cynthia's interview is inspiring and motivational, take a moment to read what she had to say about her experience at BlogHer|bet in 2011:

You all provided wonderful mentoring at BlogHer BET11 (renamed this year, BlogHer Entrepreneurs '12, which I’m also attending) and it helped me articulate and refine K12NN from top to bottom.

Jenna also had the opportunity to talk with Kathryn Finney, BlogHer Editor-at-Large and Nelly Yusupova, CTO at Webgrrls and ask, "Did you always know you would be an entrepreneur?" Their responses will fascinate you - take a peek!

But wait, there is more...

Paula Gregorowicz interviewed Pemo Theodore, expert in women owned start ups and former BlogHer Entrepreneurs mentor (2011). When asked about her recently completed project and what she learned, here is part of what she said:

The surprising thing that emerged was that I love the venture industry & feel committed to continuing to promote & support that ecosystem, particularly female venture capitalists. It has been proven that the more female VCs there are, the more women that will raise venture.

Those are only a few of the amazing women talking about BlogHer Entrepreneurs and yes, there is still an opportunity for you to be part of this unique experience. We have a very limited number of tickets remaining so register today and join us next week.

Onto BlogHer Food '12 in Seattle!

Before you know it it will be summer and time for BlogHer Food in Seattle and we are ready to take that city by storm (oops, no pun intended). We have lined up some amazing speakers, set an agenda that will not disappoint and sponsors are gearing up to dazzle.

In addition to taking over the Fairmont Olympic we are going to Pike Place Market on Saturday for an afternoon of food and festivities! Space is limited for the Pike Place Market tour so sign up today and be part of the afternoon fun.

Now bear in mind, if you want to come to the Pike Place Market with us on Saturday you need to be a registered attendee so if you haven't registered for the conference you can do so here.

Also, stay tuned for a fabulous announcement about the closing party -- yep, that's the tease!

And of course, a weekly update would not be complete without showcasing BlogHer '12 in New York City.

A few things I would like you to focus on:

Finally, let's chat about the Hilton New York. We do have rooms at the Hilton New York at the BlogHer rate on Thursday-Saturday. We no longer have rooms at the BlogHer rate on Wednesday night.

However, if you need to arrive on Wednesday night we have secured rooms across the street at the Sheraton New York. For all the specific details click over to the hotel and logistics page for discounts and codes.

Until next time...
