Fostering the startup community in Reno-Tahoe presentation next week

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Tahoe Silicon Mountain next week will welcome Eric Madison to present: "Fostering the Startup Community in Reno-Tahoe."

Building a startup isn't easy, especially outside of startup hubs like Silicon Valley. That's where the CUBE @ Midtown (formerly C4Cube) in Reno comes in.

With a new executive director, name and mission, CUBE aims to foster relationships among entrepreneurs, investors and the startup community ecosystem in Reno-Tahoe.

Madison, executive director of CUBE, is a veteran entrepreneur who has launched seven companies in Silicon Valley and Washington, D.C., including three that completed NASDAQ IPOs.

Madison has helped raise over $500 million in angel and venture capital in the last 20 years.

He will discuss how CUBE plays a role in both supporting and bringing together entrepreneurs, investors, and the startup community and why this is essential for startups to thrive in our community.
