Startup Rockon started as an answer to a simple question: How to we create an event that actually represents the passion, excitement, and energy that define startup culture as we see it?

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we’re tired of going to the same cliché “networking events” and “meet ups” every other week. Don’t get us wrong, those things have their place and have been very useful in the past, but for some reason we didn’t feel like the florescent lighting, name tags, and cheap wine really represent the lives and businesses that we’ve poured our everything into.

We believe that by creating an event that embodies the passion, energy, and excitement that define our culture, that our attendees will have a shot at forging real relationships as opposed to business contacts.
