Bob Dorf speaks to startups, their teachers and investors all over the world, bringing them an important message about getting startups right in an energetic, cram-packed presentation…

Among his many audiences:

  1. The GrowUp Startup Conference, Warsaw, Poland (3,000+ entrepreneurs)
  2. Microsoft’s European BizSpark Finals, London, England (400+)
  3. Corporate Innovators Conference, NASPERS Inc, New York City (300+)
  4. Latin America Innovation 2013, Medellin, Colombia (400+)
  5. Business of Software Conference, Boston (600+)
  6. Plus zillions of Universities, “Startup Grind” events, “fireside chats” and more

Bob always enjoys fielding audience questions, minging informally with his audiences, signing books and hanging out a bit after his talks. And he strives to tailor his message to early or late stage entrepreneurs, investors, or to innovative thinkers in established corporations.

Bob’s speeches are all over the web. They generally run 50 to 60 minutes, with or without audience Q–and–A, which always adds immensely to audience engagement and the total experience.
