I have a free ticket to Next11, taking place on May 17th and 18th in Berlin. I am willing to kindly give away this ticket.......but wait......there's a catch. You have to comment on this post. The thing you'll have to comment about is a question you'd post to my panel. I will be moderating a panel with VC's on it, from small, early-stage investors, through to larger funds. We're still working on filling out the panel......not because people don't want to participate but because I am asking everyone to be willing to talk smack, be honest and get uncomfortable.....it's not easy getting people to commit to that. It is going to be called "Europe - Gettting its Head out of its A$$"! Yeah, it's going to be good. :-)
What I want are questions to ask the panelists. I requested that we have almost an hour and I want people on the panel to sweat. Most panels suck and the questions asked even more so. I'd like to do my best to make this entertaining if not educational. It's also about talking openly about mistakes made, bad practices and how we can generally make Europe better. This is not about VC bashing, or entrepreneur bashing or Euro bashing. But it is about being honest and straight-forward and worth everyone's while.
To enter and participate, you have to comment on this post and let me know of a question you'd like answered. You also have to be following me on Twitter (@pjozefak). I will try to ask all of the questions submitted if possible and time allowig. I'll pick the best one though in my opinion and give away a free ticket to participate based on that. Deadline for submission of comments is May 3rd, 2011. This is my give-away so my rules to any of you whiners! Go to it!
