IT Security Entrepreneurs Invited to Apply to Attend Security Conference at Stanford March 14, 2007




Levensohn Venture Partners, the Department of Homeland Security, the Kauffman Foundation, the National Science Foundation, and other leaders in the VC industry have joined together to host the IT Security Entrepreneurs’ Forum, a one-day conference for best-of-breed companies.

The organizers of this invitation-only event are conducting a nationwide search to select applicants from academia, start-ups, and early stage as well as mature companies to attend, learn and meet other entrepreneurs from across the United States who also offer “best of breed” IT security solutions. This exclusive, one-day event will be held at Stanford University on March 14, 2007.

Many startups and companies offer new and innovative solutions, yet lack the resources, relationships or experience to successfully commercialize their products and services into government and industry markets.  Ironically, government leaders, industry executives and venture capitalists are constantly looking to access new and improved IT security solutions.

This is truly a rare opportunity to join government, industry and venture capital leaders who fund, build, deploy and purchase innovative IT security solutions.  This Forum will offer comprehensive panel discussions led by seasoned VC and entrepreneurial thought leaders on how to navigate the critical first years of IT security ventures.  A select group of corporate and government IT security leaders from The White House, DHS, Sun Microsystems, Oracle, eBay and other entities will discuss market trends and their current needs to help you understand how you can best address and access these markets and bring success to your venture.

Discussion topics include:

• Communicating your value proposition
• Understanding industry and government needs and priorities
• Understanding the government procurement process
• How to access government funds to finance your company
• What are the hot topics – market trends and conditions

To be a part of the 2007 IT Security Entrepreneurs’ Forum, please complete the online Application Form today at http://www.publicprivatepartnerships.org/application.html.

A review committee will screen nationwide applications based on their IT security focus, vision and differentiation. Apply now as the application deadline is February 5, 2007, or once the target of 175 applicants has successfully passed the screening committee evaluation.
