March Startup Events

I’m really excited to have learned that the Data 2.0 Summit is coming back to San Francisco this April 3rd!  This was one of the most informative conferences I’d attended in 2012, and is the largest SF conference focusing on “Data in the Cloud” including Social Data, The API Economy, Data-as-a-Service, Cloud Databases, NoSQL, and Data Markets.  This year includes data executives from Microsoft, Linkedin, Yahoo, Intuit, Salesforce Mozilla, PARC, and 60+ other speakers who will discuss why bringing data online is one of the largest catalysts of change in business, technology, and society. The Summit includes a data startup competition, a Town Hall talk, and a Data 2.0 Summit mixer.  Plus you can get 20% off your pass with the discount code d2webwallflower.  More info at http://data2summit.com/

PS:  As many know, this month marks SXSW, the annual tech/music/film fest in Austin, TX that attracts over a hundred-thousand people from around the world.  It also means that the Bay Area startup event scene tends to be a little quieter.  So our list of events, while equally exciting, is a little shorter than usual.
