After a short summer break, the VEF Momentum team is kicking off its 2009-2010 series of speaker and networking sessions with "VEF Momentum Connect: Bootstrapping to Success".

As part of our "Momentum Connect" series, this event will feature a speaker and Q&A session, as well as ample networking time to help aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs connect with the people, resources and answers they need to success - all in an inviting, fun and casual environment.

Our speaker for the evening will be Jason Bailey founder and CEO of KITN Media and SuperRewards. Using his own finances, Jason co-founded SuperRewards with two fellow entrepreneurs with the premise of monetizing virtual currencies. Almost immediately the service took off generating millions in revenues. It was acquired by AdKnowledge shortly thereafter for amount rumored in the tens of millions.

Jason will share his lessons and experiences on bootstrapping a start-up company with a killer business model and what young entrepreneurs can do to replicate SuperRewards meteoric rise to the top.
