Halsey Minor to Speak at Startup Grind Las Vegas

We try not to cover every event that’s happening in the Las Vegas startup community or this blog would just become a Las Vegas startup event blog. However, every once in a while we like to highlight new events or special events that are happening in Las Vegas. In this case, I just wanted to point out that StartupGrind Las Vegas is back.

Starting at CES in January, Michael Terpin together with Warren Whitlock have committed to holding the Startup Grind Las Vegas events again. They always do an incredible job bringing unique, successful, and interesting people to Las Vegas for the events.

This month on April 18, 2016 at 6 PM, the next Startup Grind Las Vegas will host Halsey Minor from Reality Labs and Voxelus. Here’s a little bit more about Halsey:

About HALSEY MINOR (REALITY LABS, VOXELUS)

An Internet and tech pioneer, Halsey Minor was a key player in the digital publishing revolution. In 1993, he founded CNET Networks, the first comprehensive consumer-facing technology content publisher and one of the most-visited and trusted technology information resources in the world. Halsey led CNET to become a NASDAQ 100 company. CNET was acquired by CBS Corporation in 2008 for $1.8 billion.

In 2015, Minor founded Voxelus, a platform that allows anyone, anywhere to create, share and play virtual reality games and experiences without writing a single line of code. Starting January 2016, Uphold connected to the Voxel blockchain (Voxchain), which means that VOX can be transferred between external VOX wallets and Uphold wallets, as well as being convertible from all other currencies supported by Uphold.

If you’ve never been to a Startup Grind, you should register now and attend. Plus, the event is being held at The Iron Yard (1112 S Casino Center Blvd Las Vegas, 89104), so you can learn about their new Hospitality Accelerator as well.

Startup Weekend Las Vegas is Back – Nov 20-22, 2015

I can’t keep track of how many Startup Weekend’s we’ve had in Las Vegas, but I always want to support Startup Weekend Las Vegas. For those who haven’t been around the Las Vegas startup community for very long, the first Startup Weekend Las Vegas was the kick off to everything we now know as #VegasTech. That first event together with the Vegas Jelly really brought the Las Vegas tech startup community together in a way that wasn’t happening previous to the event.

With all of that said, I’m excited that Startup Weekend Las Vegas is happening again on November 20-22, 2015 at UNLV Beam Hall and you can register here. The format is the same as usual. The kickoff on Friday with anyone who wants to pitching an idea. Then, teams are formed around the ideas and work begins to build the idea. Teams work all day Saturday and Sunday morning fleshing out their idea and launching their product/website/company. Sunday afternoon you present your idea to the judges and the prizes are awarded.

Outside of the logistics of Startup Weekend, you also get fed amazing food, get to meet and work with tons of amazing people, and you might walk away with prizes. The best part of these events really is the opportunity to meet and connect with other participants in a real working environment. You learn a lot about people when you’re working on a fun project in a time constrained situation.

It’s also worth mentioning that a number of Vegas Startup companies were started at Startup Weekend Las Vegas including one that eventually sold to eBay.

Everyone is welcome to attend Startup Weekend. There’s registration for Non-Technical, Developers, and Designers, so register now. Also, there’s a guest pass to just attend the pitches on Friday and the presentations on Sunday.

I hope to see many of you there!

A Vegas Tech CES 2015 Preview

One of the best benefits of living in Las Vegas is that we’re the conference capital of the world. If you have a niche that interests you, a conference for that niche sooner or later comes through Las Vegas. However, a few conferences call Las Vegas home permanently. The International CES event is one event that I can’t ever imagine leaving Las Vegas. Mostly because no where else is large enough to hold it. That’s a nice quiver in the cap of the Vegas Tech community.

If you haven’t registered for the event, it’s now $200 on-site registration. Next year, if you register before August, then it’s free for those in the industry (that’s everyone in Vegas Tech). However, even if you don’t want to drop the 200 bones on late registration there are a lot of local events with CES attendees that you can attend. Here’s a look at a few of them that are open to Vegas Tech community members.

Startup Debut – This media showcase is organized every year at CES and SXSW by Vegas’ own Michael Terpin and will be on January 4, 2015 from 7-10 PM. It includes dozens of startups and hundreds of top media. If you’re a startup company that wants to exhibit at the event, you better go and apply now. Michael usually gives Vegas Tech startup companies a 50% discount to be in the Vegas startups pavilion. If you’re press, you can sign up to attend the event as well. Michael and his team always do a good job at this event and have a variety of really interesting companies on display. Plus, it’s a much nicer environment to connect with them than the CES show floor which is insane.

Startup Night Downtown Vegas – This event is organized by Vegas’ own TechCocktail together with CES and Eureka Park (CES’ startup area). The event is happening on January 5th from 6-9 PM at the Gold Spike downtown. This should be a great event that brings together many in the Vegas Tech startup community together with startups from around the world. There are shuttle buses from the Venetian to downtown for those who need them. The event is free, but you must RSVP.

Tech Stars Mobility and Robotics Accelerator Info Sessions – If you have an interest in the TechStars accelerator programs, they are holding two meetups at Work in Progress: The Qualcomm Robotics Accelerator Info Session and The Techstars Mobility Accelerator driven by Detroit Info Session. Look like good sessions to learn more about the programs and network with other people interested in those programs.

CES PartyList and Wrap Party and Startup Grind Las Vegas – This event is also done by Michael Terpin and does a nice job book ending the CES event on Friday January 9th from 5-10 PM. It’s a combined CES Party List and Startup Grind Las Vegas event. It’s always a nice way to end the week at CES and talk with others about what you saw during the week. The event is free, but you need to RSVP.

I’m sure there are other events happening. If you know of others that the Vegas Tech community should know about, please let us know in the comments and we’ll update the list.

Take Part in Startup Weekend Vegas 2014

The following is a guest blog post by Claudia Perez, Organizer of Startup Weekend Las Vegas.

Startup Weekend Vegas 2014 (Nov. 21-23) at the Innevation Center is just three weeks away and it’s time you jumped in. Startup Weekend (SW) is a rare opportunity to try your hand at launching a startup in a supportive environment with other “hustlers, hackers, and hipsters”. If you’re thinking about registering, here are the top 5 reasons why you should be there:
 

1. Expand Your Network
Entrepreneurs, developers, designers, and marketers will be there and you’ll want to connect with them. Local tech and startup leaders will be at Startup Weekend as mentors and judges.  Get some one-on-one time with the movers and shakers in Las Vegas.  Just look at our judging panel, it’s made up of four investors and two successful entrepreneurs. Plus, Startup Weekend is a great way to show off your skills and meet awesome talent in the community.

2. Re-Energize
Free your mind off the daily routine and feel inspired by working on a fast paced project or idea for the weekend. At Startup Weekend attendees are excited to participate, work, and to help others create something great.

3. Work Outside of Your Comfort
“If you’re curious to test the waters as a front-end or backend developer for apps or websites, or if you have a skill for sales communication that you’d like to sharpen, this is the perfect opportunity to dabble. Startup Weekend is a learning environment and there are always people of different skill levels in attendance. Those attending with more experience are happy to teach others and give advice.” -Jaclyn Hudak, Ready Maker Design @JaclynHudak

4. Challenge Yourself
Are you an expert in website design and want to learn app development? Is there an area of design that you wish you had more experience in? Whether it’s creating apps, websites, logos, or marketing, you can join a team who needs you to create something quickly; a great way to challenge yourself and build new skills without the pressure to be absolutely perfect.

5. Build A Business
“The bottom line is that Startup Weekend is the best place to launch a startup. If you’ve had an idea in your head but haven’t done anything about it, there’s no better event to get started. You’ll be surrounded by really smart and driven people who want to work together on building something from the ground up. Maybe you’ll work on your idea, or maybe someone else’s idea will pique your interest. Startup Weekend is the place to validate a business idea, build a product and launch a startup in just 54 hours.” – Mike Chan, Co-founder of Ribl @mikewchan

Where Are We At with Vegas Tech and Downtown Project?

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a few weeks, but work’s been busy. Yep. That’s right. There are a lot of people working at Las Vegas startup companies that are too busy to fret over some misguided reports about what’s happening (or not happening) with the Downtown Project and in many regards the larger Vegas Tech community. However, as someone who could live anywhere in the world, but has chose to make Las Vegas my home, I’m very interested in the discussion.

I won’t recap here all that went down. In case you missed the flare up, check out Mike Yoder’s nice summary and also the statement from Downtown Project. That should give you a pretty good summary. The facts are that Downtown Project laid off 30 people or about 10% of the Downtown project staff and Tony still has the same role he’s always had in Downtown Project. Layoffs are never fun at any company and is a huge deal for those 30 people. My heart goes out to those individuals, but it’s hardly a sign that Downtown Project is over/failing or whatever other verb you prefer.

First, Downtown Project scaled so quickly, that there’s little doubt that there were some bad hires, bad fits, or some hires that aren’t needed as the project evolves. This is especially true when you think of Downtown Project as a collection of over 300 companies and legal entities. Plus, none of those layoffs were from the 100+ (I lose track of their actual number) tech startup companies that come from the $50 million Vegas Tech Fund. All in all, there really isn’t that much of a story here. Downtown Project is still on the same trajectory it’s always been on. However, I can see how an outsider media member might not understand the entire context of what’s happening.

However, the thing the media people seem to miss is that there’s a whole lot more to the Las Vegas startup community than just the Downtown Project. Sure, Tony Hsieh is the only one in the Vegas Startup community that can get on 60 Minutes (and he should get whatever exposure for Vegas that he can get), but that’s not to say that there’s not a number of interesting companies and people with no real relationship to Downtown Project doing business in Las Vegas. In fact, I’d suggest that some of the most interesting companies in Las Vegas have no ties to Downtown Project. One day, the media will discover this as well.

Plus, it’s worth noting that Downtown Project together with a variety of other factors have literally brought together a startup community in Las Vegas from nothing. I know first hand since I quit my day job to start my first company back in 2010, a full 2 years before Downtown Project even existed. I’d done my Masters at UNLV. I’d been to all the local tech meetings. In 2010, there was no tech startup community for me to look to for my new company. There were a few tech startup companies, but literally no community.

In 2011 (6+ months before Downtown Project), Rick Duggan and I started this blog to try and do something to bring together the Las Vegas startup community. We knew of 20 startup companies and figured there had to be at least 20 more that we just didn’t yet know about. Boy were we wrong. We’ve now lost count of companies, but there are hundreds of tech startup companies in Las Vegas.

However, the number of companies really doesn’t matter. Maybe there have been hundreds of tech startup companies in Las Vegas all along. What we discovered was that none of these companies knew each other, supported each other or worked together. The first Startup Weekend Las Vegas (Side note: the 8th Startup Weekend Las Vegas is happening next month), the Vegas Jelly, and the #vegastech hashtag started bringing the tech startup community together in a really extraordinary way.

Now, hundreds of startup companies and thousands of startup company employees interact, support, and help each other. That didn’t exist in 2010 in Las Vegas, but it does now. Tony Hsieh’s $350 million Downtown Project has just thrown gas on the already burning fire. The Supernap’s InNEVation Center has contributed the same. Now the fire has spread and the Las Vegas Startup community isn’t dependent on either organization. However, I don’t expect either the Downtown Project or the InNEVation Center to stop what they’re doing anytime soon. They’ll both keep contributing in a big way.

That’s not to say that the Las Vegas startup community is out of the woods. I’m not saying we couldn’t take a step back. We definitely will takes steps forward and backwards. There are cycles that we’re certain to see. Not to mention we could benefit from more outside investment. We could use some nice acquisitions from landmark companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Microsoft, that are big enough that they leave the company in Las Vegas.

We’ve had a number of “singles” and “doubles” as far as exits, but the startup community will really benefit from some much larger exits that will fund the next generation of startup companies. We haven’t had that yet, but that will take some time to build. We also need to do a much better job engaging the wealth in the broader Las Vegas business community. Not to mention, we need to work to develop the entrepreneurial culture in our high schools and colleges. Although, those present tremendous opportunities considering we haven’t had their support and we’ve already made it this far.

Who knows if Downtown Project is going to be a success or a failure for Tony Hsieh and his other investors. It’s already 300 investments in including $200 million in real estate. I think they’ll turn out just fine. However, regardless of what happens to the Downtown Project, the Las Vegas tech startup community is 100 or maybe even 1000 times better today than it was before Downtown Project was started. Some of that was thanks to Downtown Project, but a lot of it happened totally separate.

Even if Downtown Project were to close its doors today (which it’s not even close to), the Las Vegas startup community would continue to thrive. Those who’ve only taken the Tony Hsieh tour of Las Vegas won’t understand that, but those of us who’ve lived the change know that a community is much more than an area of downtown and its most visible member.

The 20 year outlook for the Las Vegas startup community is very bright. I’m excited to be a part of it.

Vegas Startup Events During NMX, CES, and ASW

This next week and a half Las Vegas has what I call the trifecta of conferences: New Media Expo, CES, and Affiliate Summit West. All three of these events are amazing events that are always held in Las Vegas at this time. It’s one of the great reasons to run your startup company in Las Vegas. Hundreds of thousands of people will be visiting and taking part in the events. It’s always great when customers and opportunities for exposure come to you.

Downtown Project has some big plans during CES this year with a program they’re calling Passport 2 Downtown. Along with familiar events organized by TechCocktail, PandoDaily is also holding a Pando Monthly and Downtown Podcast will be recording at the new Inspire Theater. Oh yes, and your Downtown Passport can also get you free drinks all over downtown Las Vegas. Looks like it will be a great time to showcase what’s happening with startup companies in Downtown Las Vegas.

There are literally thousands of other events happening during these events as well. Plus, you can connect with people stopping through town.

At the same time, AT&T is once again holding their Developer Summit. The Hackathon is Jan 4-5 and is free to participate. I believe our very own Rick Duggan will be taking part.

What’s your plans during these conferences? Will you be taking part? Are there any other events we should know about?
