Last week, Mike promised that, if Sarah Lacy’s new book, Brilliant Crazy, Cocky, reached the number one slot in Amazon’s Entrepreneurship category, we’d host a big launch party in San Francisco.
At TechCrunch, we keep our promises. The party in on!
Update: Tickets to the event are now completely sold out. If you’d still like to attend, you can try to win a ticket here.
The fun kicks off at 6:00p.m. on Wed, Mar 9th at SWIG in San Francisco. Tickets are just $20 which includes an open bar (oh yes), food and a signed copy of the book (which normally retails at $24.95). All of which makes this probably the best value event TechCrunch has ever hosted.
And there’s more: a portion of the event proceeds will go to Partners in Health, a group that brings high-quality health care usually reserved for the rich to the poorest people in the world. Known for their long time work in Haiti, Sarah spent time with Partners in Health in Rwanda, seeing the difference they were making in lives close up. You can ask her about it at the party.
You can also ask her about the Brilliant, Crazy and Cocky entrepreneurs she met around the world during the reporting of the book. A book which, by the way, USA Today called “a fascinating new gem of a book” that “[gets] inside the heads of idea people,” Fortune said, “Go buy it. Seriously. This is an outstanding piece of journalism,” and New York Magazine just featured in its ‘approval matrix’ between “highbrow” and “brilliant.” So there you go.
The venue has limited capacity, so tickets will sell out fast. You already know how much fun TechCrunch events are and – given the international flavor of the book (and the open bar) – this one should be particularly entertaining. For one thing, we’re trying to arrange a fleet of internationally themed food-trucks to give a taste of some of places Sarah travelled.
And did I mention the open bar?
