“Looking for global entrepreneurs who want to build a smarter planet.”
What is the SmartCamp?
SmartCamp is an exclusive event aimed at identifying early stage entrepreneurs who are developing business ventures that align with our IBM Smarter Planet vision.
In 2010 and 2011, we held seventeen SmartCamp events around the world. In each location, five finalists were selected for a one to two day event to network with 25 world-class entrepreneurs, investors, and industry experts. These mentoring and networking events put entrepreneurs in touch with experts that can help accelerate their business.

What’s new for 2012?
In 2012, IBM Global Entrepreneur is expanding the SmartCamp initiative to new geographies, and we are introducing a new type of focused event series: IBM SmartCamp KickStart events.
KickStarts are one or two day events with a similar structure to our SmartCamp events from previous years, enabling startups to receive mentoring from world-class advisors. Selected finalists from the KickStart events will have the opportunity to advance to the four SmartCamp regional events.
The initial set of KickStart events focus on specific topics, such as healthcare and IBM Smarter Cities, and we will continue to add KickStart events as they are scheduled.

TechMeetups has been setup to create a global network of Tech communities from San Francisco to Sydney. We believe that Tech communities are isolated and great things can be achieved if we connect within our cities and outside our borders. Our goal is to create a global Tech cluster of over 50 inter-connected Tech communities by 2013.
Membership to our communities is free and anyone thinking about doing their own Startup and wanting to bounce ideas off each other, meet potential partners or investors in their city or even connect with like minded individuals in other parts of the world are welcome to join our groups! TechMeetups is all about YOU so come along, join us and lets connect to form a truly global tech community!
