Okay, okay, this might not be the best sales pitch per se, but if Entrepreneurs Unplggd isn't on your radar, it should be, because it's like a story slam, but all about the ins and outs and ebbs and flows of the entrepreneur's hustle and struggle. Anyway, Unpluggd's events are always worthwhile, and they aren't as frequent as they truly should be, which makes the coming Jan. 24 event on scaling startups -- or how three entrepreneurs took their companies from the startup phase to becoming huge ventures -- all the more worth keeping in mind as we barrel towards the end of this year.
Tapped to speak are 37signals' CEO and Co-Founder Jason Fried, Eved Founder Talia Mashiach, and Centro's Founder and President Shawn Riegsecker. Early-bird tickets run cost $20, and the price will slide up to $30 as the date draws closer. You can buy tickets and read more about the event here.
