Google Brings Entrepreneurial Boot Camp to Autism Investment Conference

Attendees to Autism Speaks business conference invited to complementary day-long workshop at Googleplex
January 14, 2014

This year’s Autism Investment Conference just became more exciting and cutting edge. Autism Speaks’ partner Google Inc. is offering a complementary, day-long “Equipping Entrepreneurs” workshop for all registrants.

Autism Speaks’ second annual Autism Investment Conference (AIC2014) will be held March 4 and 5 at the Bently Reserve in San Francisco. The optional, day-long entrepreneurial "boot camp" will be held on March 6, at Google’s main campus in nearby Mountain View, California.  

“We are enormously pleased to partner with Google to make our Autism Investment Conference even more special for participants,” says Autism Speaks Chief Science Officer Robert Ring. “Our two organizations are committed to helping new and existing businesses develop the skills and experiences necessary to deliver the innovative products and services our autism community demands.” 

Google’s "Equipping Entrepreneurs" workshop will feature expert sessions designed for new as well as experienced entrepreneurs. Topics will range from the basics of raising capital and writing business plans to building social marketing campaigns and “guerilla PR.”

Workshop participants will be provided transportation to and from Googleplex and Le Meriden, San Francisco – this year’s AIC2014 headquarter hotel. Food will also be provided. Space is limited and prompt registration encouraged.

To register for both the conference and the optional full-day workshop, visit the AIC2014 website here.

Autism Speaks’ AIC2014 is the premier business development event in the autism space. AIC2014 offers a venue for developers and entrepreneurs to connect with professional investors and business development professionals to learn about the field’s newest developments, trends and opportunities.

The AIC2014 program spans two days and features sessions focused across a wide range of product categories including medicines and devices, diagnostics, assistive technology, employment services, housing, wandering-prevention technology and educational products. Each session will include a company showcase and expert panel discussions exploring challenges in each segment of the field, ranging from reimbursement issues to regulatory pathways.
