A couple of weeks ago, Matthew Michalewicz, CEO if SolveIT Software, invited me to an Entrepreneurship and Networking Evening event that will be hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce in Australia (South Australia). It also incorporates the book launch of "Winning Credibility: A Guide for Building a Business from Rags to Riches". It is authored by Matthew and his dad, Zbigniew Michalewicz.
Some presentations during the evening include:
- "Getting Started with Start Up Capital" (by Amanda Heyworth, CEO, Playford Capital)
- "Innovating with Somebody Else's Money" (by Mike Burfield, Director, InVenture Partners)
- "Training and Education for Entrepreneurs" (by Bill Price, CEO, Venture Capital Board)
I've met Matthew and his incredible family (congrats again on the birth of your new baby boy), who are all a pleasure to talk to and be with. They're friendly, warm, intelligent, and dedicated. It's great to be in the company of such individuals.
Anyway, if you're in Adelaide on Wednesday, 26 July 2006 (5.15 - 7.15 pm), you might want to consider booking for the said event. It's free but you need to register. To do so, just go AmCham's website and book online. You can also print off a PDF copy of the booking form and send it off to them. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency, North Terrace, Adelaide, South Australia. And apparently, there are already about 300 people who have registered so far. So, it's all looking good for the organisers and participants.
Now, if you decide to go, please let me know. I'd love to meet up and say hello. I'm really hoping that I could make it to the event.
