A little over two weeks from today, I will be speaking during the Teens in Tech Conference at the Palo Alto Research Center. For those not familiar with the event or the organization, I think it is best to simply quote their self-described and concise one-liner:
The Teens in Tech Conference is about connecting youth and technology with entrepreneurship, startups and the web. We’ll achieve just that in front of an audience of young entrepreneurs, developers and designers.
Teens in Tech first announced its incubator earlier this year in January. The company aims to help young entrepreneurs as they build their first companies with mentoring and resources. Many teenage hopefuls (required ages 13-19) applied for a spot in the program before the March deadline.
Daniel Brusilovsky, the Founder and CEO, finally announced the first batch of selected start-ups on the Teens in Tech blog last week. The following incubator companies will present during the demo portion of the upcoming conference. Here’s a quick gist for those interested:
- Codulous – a cloud-powered code editor which syncs with your desktop and other services
- BuyNomial – helping you budget for whatever you want in a faster and smarter way
- MySchoolHelp – making it easy for high school students to find and share their classmates’ notes
- Bubbls – a geo-social mobile application that lets your friends know when you can hang out
- CM Studios – bringing a zombie game to the iPhone, and soon Android
- Workcrib – a social sharing site for your work space
There is also a phenomenal lineup of speakers. Names include Andrew Hsu (Airy Labs), Andrew Nacin (WordPress), Daniela Lapidous (SmartPowerEd), Gregory Koberger (Mozilla), Joey Primiani (Cortex), Katie Fehrenbacher (Earth2Tech), Kevin Hartz (EventBrite), Michael Simmons (Flexibits), Robert Scoble (Rackspace), Shad Balch (GM), and Zak Kukoff (TruantToday). Of course, I’ll be speaking as well.
