Inspire, Educate & Connect Every Entrepreneur on the Planet.
In a world where entrepreneurs are often divided by borders, cultural differences and
competition, it’s easy to lose sight of what we all have in common.
BTD seeks to overcome that — to help entrepreneurs see themselves in others — through the
power of real-time interaction.
Our purpose is to share practical business knowledge, personal stories and
experiences to help grow a new generation of entrepreneurs.
We started out (in 2008) as a conference to bring together amazing entrepreneurs to
share their experience in creating and growing businesses.
Since then its scope has broadened, along with the annual BTD Conference in San Francisco,
California, BTD is looking to expand to China and Europe in 2010 with one goal in mind:
To connect entrepreneurs and learn from each other.
BizTechDay San Francisco
The BizTechDay Conference, held annually in San Francisco, is the heart of BTD. With
almost 1,000 attendees for the 2009 conference, the content has expanded to include
Science, Business, The arts and current global issues.
The annual conference in San Francisco brings together the most fascinating entrepreneurs
and doers who have been there and done that. They care about helping other entrepreneurs by
sharing their practical business strategies, experience and personal stories.
For BizTechDay 2010 will run for 14 hours, with 9 entrepreneurial speakers each taking
a 45-minute slot. We will inspire, educate & connect, eat, drink and have lots
BizTechDay China 2010

From Those Who Were There…
“WOW! I was not sure what to expect – but I loved the many different elements in the day. I
enjoyed that it was short topics (45 minutes) so you got a taste of many things during the day
and could then follow up where interested at the networking session.”
“The energy & enthusiasm were high. The speakers were really engaged. It was all great –
the keynote, the sessions, the mini genius sessions. All fantastic.”
– Deyon ”
So many experts that share what works for them. Valuable up-to-date technical information
that entrepreneur like myself can really use. Lots of encouragement also to see so many other
entrepreneurs in this turbulent time, so committed, and enthusiastic!”
How It All Started
In 2008, whilst talking with Gary Marshall from the Small Business Administration, Edith

from an amazing event like this.”
