Wiskirchen to discuss venture idea evaluation with other prominent figures in entrepreneurial and investor communities

Feb. 16, 2010 — Brad Wiskirchen, CEO of Idaho’s top performing privately held tech company Keynetics and its subsidiaries Kount and ClickBank, has been selected by the Stanford Graduate School of Business to take part in an important panel discussion during the university’s annual Entrepreneur Conference.

The conference, scheduled Feb. 26 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., features a series of interactive panels and a list of speakers that includes prominent figures in the entrepreneurial and investor communities. It will be held in the South Building of the Graduate School of Business.

Wiskirchen will serve on a panel entitled “Idea Evaluation.” Also on this panel are Dave Whorton, Tugboat Ventures; Kevin Reeth, Outright.com; Bob Fell, Pricelock, Inc.; and Justin Fishner Wolfson, Founder’s Fund. Panelists will address how to determine whether an idea is substantial enough to start a new venture, how to solicit and incorporate feedback to make an idea more viable, and how the evaluation process impacts decisions on how to structure and fund future stages of development.

“The Entrepreneur Conference is one of the programs the Stanford Graduate School of Business provides to helps students, faculty and alumni develop a greater understanding of the issues and challenges faced by entrepreneurs,” said Wiskirchen. “By sharing what we have experienced first-hand, we can deepen and advance attendees’ knowledge of business enterprise and management. I look forward to being part of such a valuable learning experience.”

The Stanford Graduate School of Business Entrepreneur Conference is expected to draw about 350 attendees. For a complete conference schedule and list of additional panel discussions and speakers, please visit the conference website.
