Hustle Con 2016

From Hustle Con:

WHAT IS HUSTLE CON?
Hustle Con is a one-day startup conference where the best non-technical founders give practical tactics on growing your startup. Basically, Hustle Con is a rock n’ roll version of TED, except not as hoity-toity and focused on startup entrepreneurs.

Hustle Con is created by The Hustle, a digital business news publication.


HOW DOES HUSTLE CON WORK?
Hustle Con works like business school: You show up and are taught strategies for starting and growing your company. Except at Hustle Con, you’re not paying $50,000 to attend…because that’s just stupid.

We’ve gathered the founders of the fastest growing startups to give 30-minute keynotes on actionable tactics for launching and growing your startup. You’ll learn how they got started, how they grew, and what they learned along the way.

The conference will be at the Paramount Theater – a concert-style venue – in Oakland, California (5 miles outside of San Francisco). Capacity is limited to 2,500 people and we sell out every year (proof).


SHOULD I COME?
If you want to learn from the best founders in the world and hear their stories, then yes, come.

If you want to learn non-technical tactics (growth, marketing, hiring, getting started), then yes you should come.

The typical attendee works at or runs their own startup and wants to learn tactics on growing the company.

One attendee last year said, “It felt like I was having an intellectual orgasm during each talk.” That’s pretty gross, but if you want to have an “intellectual orgasm” then yeah, you should come too. You sicko.
