I did attend ETRE 08 in Stockholm the other week courtesy of Red Herring and Peter Sandberg (at Moyume), it was a very inspiring event, and I meet a lot of interesting people.
This was the 19th ETRE, and gathered movers and shakers from all over the world, from Berthelsmann, Press, Entrepreneurs, Banks to VC icons such as Tim Draper and Swedish financial elite’s such as Marcus Wallenberg.
I think ETRE is set apart from many of the events I have intended, and provided an excellent networking opportunity to meet, discuss, and exchange ideas with some very interesting people from all cornors of the world, and can be highly recommended.
Next year, the 20th ETRE, should be something special (Alex, the CEO of RedHerring hinted it might be in France), so check out Red Herring for more information during next year.
I will also be attending SIME 2008, and blogg live from the event, so watch out for that here!
