“Everywhere Else Tennessee” is a national start-up conference focused entirely on helping entrepreneurs and startups tackle the unique challenges of starting up outside of Silicon Valley. The event is expecting a sellout crowd of 400 for its 2nd annual event in Memphis, TN April 30 – May 2, 2014 at the 409 South Main Gallery.

Organizers have specifically reached out to East Tennessee and want us to represent our entrepreneurs and start-up community at “Everywhere Else Tennessee” and have given us our own discount code “Tech2020” to receive 20% off all tickets.

“Everywhere Else Tennessee” will feature over 30 nationally known speakers including Jim McKelvey, co-founder of Square, Paul Singh, founder of Disruption Corp & Crystal Tech Fund, and Nicole Glaros, managing director of Techstars.

With the conference’s extreme focus on community, entrepreneurs will enjoy almost unparalleled access to meet and connect with the speakers and investors at their three very unique after parties, which include a Beale Street Bar Hop and Memphis Disco Night.

Ten of the country’s most promising start-ups will participate in a Start-up Avenue and compete in a Showdown judged by a panel of VCs and angels for the title of Heavy Weight Champion of “Everywhere Else.” Investors from both coasts representing some of the top firms including Andreessen Horowitz, Betaworks and 500 Startups will be in attendance.

Tech20/20 has also secured two full conference passes to be given away to East Tennessee entrepreneurs to attend the event in Memphis. You can enter to win at here.
