One of the conference’s good looking organizers tells me that remaining early bird tickets available until Jan 9th at the latest. Also there is a substantially discounted “startup” pass for… startups if that’s you.

UPDATE: If you’d like to get in to the conference for free, GameOn is recruiting a few volunteers to help out with the show. Volunteering for one 5 hr stint during the event will earn you a free ticket and a chance to interact directly with some of the organizers, speakers etc. Sounds like a good deal. Details on the website.

Also in startup Finance in January don’t forget: Founders & Funders Dinner Jan 21, tickets are $75
