We love lists @NWEN_org... so here is a list of seven reasons why you should be at Entrepreneur University 2012!

1. Come to CONNECT with Seattle's startup network - Students, Entrepreneurs, Organizations like Lean Startup Seattle - Startup Weekend - Founder Institute - Startup Washington, VCs and Angels, topical experts, handsome people, and maybe even a co-founder!

2. Come to LEARN - We have a ton of great subjects for startups at the beginning and middle of their growth phases. There will be top 10 checklists as well as specific how-to's like validating customers and building lean. For those mature startup junkies we have some amazing trending topics like crowd funding and gamification. And don’t forget the dozen contextual table topics at lunch. Read more..

3. Come to be INSPIRED. Our keynotes (Richard Tait, Molly Neitzel Moon, and Phil Gordon) have amazing stories. Some are hilarious, some are deep, and some simply make you say…yeah, I want to do that! Perhaps you'll see a bit of your journey in in theirs.

4. Come for VC BISTRO. You have the chance to belly up to a bistro table and talk about your startup to some of Seattle's best VCs! How often can you get advice like that? Answer..once a year at EU.

5. Come for MEDIA BISTRO. You know you want to see your story in GeekWire, Xconomy, Puget Sound Business Journal (PSBJ) or the Seattle Times. But HOW do you get it in front of the folks that pen them? Media Bistro is a chance to introduce yourself and find out how...right from the writer's mouths!

6. Come for the EXTRA CREDIT - Are you a business student interested in entrepreneurship? Did you know the Herbert B. Jones Foundation has given you a SCHOLARSHIP TO ATTEND the event? This is a great opportunity to let someone else pay your way and if your professor is really cool (some of them certainly are) they may even give you some extra credit for joining the EU crowd. I've heard stories!

7. After the event stay for drinks and even a POKER TOURNAMENT put on by Startup Poker 2.0. Try your luck/skill against poker superstar Phil Gordon. Seriously...good luck!

Snag your ticket at NWEN.org and if you are a student don’t forget to fill out the half-page application (takes five minutes) and email it to info@nwen.org. See you at EU next Friday.
