As part of the events division, you’ll be a huge force in the backend operations associated with our startup and investor conferences, Demo Days, and “Geeks On A Plane” world tech tours.

> Vendor Management - Interviewing, negotiating with, & managing vendors both before, during, & after the event
> Attendee Communications & Customer Service - Communicating efficiently & effectively with “customers” (attendees) to ensure their questions are answered and their needs are met.
