In this post….
SMASH Summit – Thurs, Jul 26th, NYC
Geeks on a Plane ‘Eastern Europe’  – Sept 18 – 20, Moscow, Tallin, Zagreb, & Berlin (more details below).

up next…

At SMASH,  we’ll cover new tactics, “hack-tics”, and strategies for Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter & more, because let’s face it – customer acquisition is hard as sh*%, and relying on your awesome product to move the needle is probably a terrible strategy.  At SMASH, you can hear case studies and lessons learned from folks like: Fred Wilson (Managing Parnter, USV), Chris Ackermann (Strategic Partnerships, Facebook), Dan Porter (Founder, OMGPOP), Dror Shimshowitz (Head of Product, YouTube), Katia Beauchamp (Co-Founder, Birchbox), Jessica Lawrence (Managing Director, NY Tech Meetup), & many more!


and in September…

Eastern Europe has been on 500’s radar for a while so we’re stoked to tour the burgeoning tech hubs in Moscow, Tallinn, Zagreb & Berlin. GOAP is an invite-only tour that has been uniting Geeks the world over since 2008. Aside from discovering the pulse of these ripe tech hubs you will have fun on planes, trains and automobiles, meet startups, geeks, and new friends from all over the world, & learn about cultures in other countries.
