The theme of last week’s Nantucket Conference on Entrepreneurship & Innovation was “BOS + NYC,” and the event brought together founders and venture capitalists from both cities. Thankfully, there wasn’t too much sports trash talk, or comparisons of the startup scene in the two cities.
The complete agenda is here, and you can see tweets and participant photos from the event on Twitter. Infomous also created an interesting time machine that shows what people were talking about on Twitter over the course of the event.
The audio from several sessions is below, featuring CEOs like Neil Blumenthal of Warby Parker; Gail Goodman of Constant Contact; Jon Oringer of Shutterstock; Chad Dickerson of Etsy; Slava Rubin of Indiegogo; and Hayley Barna of Birchbox. Plus, Staples’ VP of E-Commerce, Prat Vemana. You can click play to hear any of the tracks below, or the “down arrow” to download them for later listening.
Here’s a slightly gruesome fundraising video for an independent film that Slava Rubin showed during his session; that campaign had a goal of $20,000, and raised $29,000.
(Full disclosure: I am one of the founders of the Nantucket Conference; this was the 15th year for it. And just as I am paid to blog and write articles here, I also am paid to help put together the conference’s agenda.)
