    Ivy League degree? 401K? VP of what? Screw that. Entrepreneurship on a global scale is exploding, facilitated by a growing ecosystem of resources and supporting institutions to help startups succeed. However, there is a significant difference in quality amongst these varying institutions, people and content. In this panel we will help the audience discover and navigate the emerging startup support ecosystem. Whether you're currently fielding inquiries from Pepsi, applying to TechStars, or negotiating an angel investment for your third startup, the members of this panel will lend expertise within the following four core areas:

    1. Tools: Startup Genome, Mixpanel and Kissmetrics which help you to track your progress and make better decisions
    2. Supporting institutions: Accelerators, Service Providers, VCs, Market Entrance Partners
    3. Science and Education of Entrepreneurship: Eric Ries, Steve Blank and other thought leaders release content that is transforming the way entrepreneurship is done.
    4. Corporate Partnerships: working with companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Twitter, for better distribution, valuation and M&A.
