From: Caitlin McGrath <cmcgrath at commonwealthclub.org>
We wanted to let you know of a program coming up on May 21st in San Jose
that students focused on technology and the law might be interested in.
Projected to be the first floating city in international waters, the
Blueseed project is dedicated to harvesting entrepreneurship by creating a
place where the world’s top tech minds can collaborate. According to a
report just published by Blueseed, almost 150 companies polled said they’d
be interested in setting up shop. VentureBeat and The Huffington Post say
the project is “gaining steam” and companies might flock to participate in
what could prove to be a haven for tech innovation. Don’t miss the chance
to hear from CEO Max Marty and others, find out what’s keeping the project
afloat and what challenges may lay ahead.
We would be grateful if you could help us spread the word about the event
by posting the event details on your website or forwarding it to interested
contacts. We would, of course, be happy to offer faculty tickets at our
discounted member price and student tickets are only $7.00. PLEASE EMAIL
ME DIRECTLY TO RECEIVE THE COUPON CODE.
Thank you for your kind consideration! I’ve included more event details
below and here is the link to our website: http://bit.ly/BlueseedCWC.
Please feel free call or email me any time at
cmcgrath at commonwealthclub.org or (415)
597-6727. I look forward to hearing from you!
