    With equity markets taking a conservative view of Internet companies, and venture firms more wary of web-based investments, the market place for start-ups has shifted dramatically in the last six months. Yet wireless and infrastructure are not the only games in town, and many leading venture firms see a return to fundamentals which will only strengthen business opportunities in the long run. Attend the kick-off of SDForum's new San Francisco series at the Women's Technology Cluster and find out:

    • the lessons learned from the past three years
    • what works on the web today
    • how to attract venture investors in the current environment
    • what investors can and cannot do to help you succeed

    Plus a Q&A with a panel of venture investors who will share their perspectives.
