Announcing Startup Camp, Another Reason to Attend BoxWorks Developer Day

By

BoxWorks Developer Day is upon us, and we’re excited to announce a brand new addition: Startup Camp.

What’s Startup Camp? Quick, I’ll pretend I’m pitching you at TechCrunch Disrupt:

Startup Camp is like a Genius Bar for aspiring cloud entrepreneurs. Got a wicked cool idea for an enterprise app or SaaS business? Run it by us. We’ll have a dedicated team of  experts from Box ready to listen to you and provide advice based on our years of expertise. Whether it’s about Design, UI, Marketing or Selling, come to BoxWorks Developer Day on October 9th and get ready for some serious 1:1 enablement. Startup Camp is free of charge for anyone attending BoxWorks Developer Day. Register today. 

Not bad, right? Now that you know what Startup Camp is, let me tell you why we’re doing it. If you’re like me, you’ve probably been to a lot of conferences where you attend a boatload of sessions and walk away with lots of insights, only to have your ideas relegated to a notebook that’s stashed away in your desk, or perhaps in an Evernote, never to be read again. What if you could walk away with something more valuable? What if you could take an app concept or a spark of an idea and vet it 1:1 with Silicon Valley experts? Well, that’s what we’re going to do at Startup Day! And to make things extra fun, we’ll have a giant whiteboard table where you can brainstorm and flesh out your ideas with the Box crew.

Startup Camp is the newest addition to our already jam-packed Developer Day. We’re kicking off Dev Day with a fireside chat featuring Marc Andreessen and John Donahoe, and will follow that with a keynote from our own Aaron Levie. We’ll then have over 15 sessions of content featuring technology partners like Stripe, Parse, Firebase and Appcelerator, as well as shared experiences from Box partners and customers like Crushpath and Netflix. And this is all in addition to dedicated sessions on how to leverage the Box platform and API.

So go ahead, register today and use the special code BXDEV100 for $100 off. We look forward to seeing you there!
