Before we begin Speed Networking, we are extremely pleased to present a speaker with a truly inspiring story. In March of this year, @Last Software, creators of SketchUp, was acquired by Google. SketchUp is a 3D sketch/modeling tool, and the creators developed a plugin for exporting 3D models to Google Earth. The founder of @Last, Brad Schell, will share his amazing story at the May 9 meeting.

Cost: $30 for RVC members; $45 for non-members. Cost includes hors d'oeuvres. $5 more at the door.

About Speed Networking

The networking begins in groups of 10, with an assigned captain. Each table participant will give a brief description about themselves and pass out business cards. After ten minutes is up, we'll switch to another group of ten, lather, rinse and repeat.

We had an overflowing crowd last round, and we expect this event to be even bigger and better. So bring cards, bring your elevator pitch, bring your ideas and bring your friends.

This might be one of our best events ever, so don't miss it.

About the Speaker

Brad holds a BS in Architectural Engineering from the University of Colorado. After leaving college, things pretty much went downhill. Trained as a structural engineer, he realized a distinct pattern of being laid off on his one-year anniversary with the first three engineering firms he worked for. At that point, he began wondering if the "poor economy" was really to blame and realized the only way he was going to remain employed was to start something himself. He was on the founding team of a start-up masonry coatings company, he formed a successful engineering consulting firm and was one of the founders of CadZooks, a software company that was purchased by Autodesk in 1996. SketchUp is the result of years and years of frustration of trying to push people up the 3D learning curve. With over 15 years of experience with 3D software, Brad has proven over and over again the power of designing in 3D. It was the desire to make 3D easy and accessible to everyone that brought Brad and Joe together to form @Last Software in late 1999. We're not exactly sure what Brad does these days at the office, but when not working, he would prefer to be on the water windsurfing or kite-boarding. He also has been seen mountain biking, snow boarding and chasing the perfect margarita.

The Rockies Venture Club is a 20-year-old, non-profit association that celebrates the spirit of entrepreneurship in the Rocky Mountain region. The organization connects entrepreneurs to the people, knowledge and money they need to help their companies succeed.
