Q&A + Cocktails: Indie Entrepreneur Pro Tips From Jedi Masters! says
Greetings, Programs! Thrilled to host my Seattle Game Developers Meetup in conjunction with Seattle Startup Week for this special edition! In the spirit of startups, we have assembled a panel of Jedi Masters, each with 20+ years of industry XP to offer their wisdom and answer all of your burning questions on the ins-and-outs of indie entrepreneurship:
When to start prepping for a Kickstarter? How to approach investors? How do I compile a compelling pitch deck? How do I approach someone to be a co-founder/partner/advisory board member? How do I balance my project between my day job, networking, events, conferences? How do I find someone to handle the business operations side-- taxes, legal contracts, etc?

If these ?'s sound familiar, you won't want to miss this! We'll start at 7pm with cocktails and snackies, courtesy of our sponsor, Hashbang Games! From 8pm - 9pm we'll do Q&A with our esteemed panel, then from 9pm - 10pm, we'll continue with game demos and cocktails.

Who is this esteemed panel of Jedi Masters, you ask? We are honored to have Marco Williams, CEO of Hashbang Games and Head of Developer SDK at PlayFab... Seth Talbott, serial entrepreneur, startup advisor and Puget Sound Business Journal's "40 under 40"... Kim Voynar, CEO of WonderTek Labs and serial entrepreneur... and perhaps another surprise panelist to be unveiled later...stay tuned!

As always, everyone is welcome to fire up their laptops and demo their projects before and after the panel Q&A-- please remember to bring all your power cords, etc! ;)

Last but not least... Huge thanks to our newest sponsor, Puget Systems! Thinking of upgrading and building your next dream computer? Check 'em out!

Hope to see you there!
