Over the past 24 hours I’ve received several emails from colleagues at Dreamforce ’13 about all the cool things going on at the show. After reading the emails, and following the tweets, I realized that all ambitious software entrepreneurs, regardless of industry, should attend at least one Dreamforce event in person.
Here are a few reasons to attend the Dreamforce conference:
- Scale – it’s hard to get a feel for the size based on the pictures — being in person helps expand the mind to just how much success and influence a company can attain
- Energy – passionate communities have incredible energy and in the world of cloud computing / Software-as-a-Service, it doesn’t get any better than the excitement of the Dreamforce attendees
- Innovation – walking the show floor with hundreds of software companies exhibiting, many of them startups, helps fire more synapses in the brain about what’s possible
- Billionaires – it’s not about the money but there’s something inspiring for entrepreneurs to be around and shake hands with a billionaire (or two)
So, all software entrepreneurs should put October 13, 2014 on their calendar now and attend Dreamforce 2014.
What else? What are your thoughts on ambitious entrepreneurs attending the largest software conference in the world to expand their mind as to what’s possible?
