Big news! The event you’ve all been waiting for is nearly here. After receiving several hundred nominations and many grueling hours of work by our judges, the names on the first annual Silicon Bayou 100 will be released on Monday, December 5th, 2011.
There is a *catch* though. The names will be released simultaneously at the RELEASE PARTY from 7:00-9:00 pm at Le Phare in New Orleans (click here to register) and to our e-mail subscribers in a special evening newsletter. At the party we will also announce and invite the Top 5 individuals on stage to receive special recognition and a token of our appreciation for the good work they’ve been doing on the Silicon Bayou.
The greatest news of all is that thanks to our very generous sponsors, general admission to the party is FREE. So put your fancy shoes on and get ready for some of the best networking and celebrating you’ve done all year.
If you’re rolling in the dough and want to help support our growth, we also have $10 VIP Supporter tickets for the event. The VIP tickets come with a free drink coupon and limited edition “I <3 SBN” button. The more VIP tickets you buy the more buttons we have to make – so if you want to see Molly & Henry in a button-making-frizzy-hair-frenzy, support SBN with your crispest Hamilton.
