Bryan Barrios, CEO of Archon Information Systems, will speak at the Tax Lien Investors Conference, held November 10th-13th at The Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans. Barrios will present on the topic, “Tax Lien Case Study; State of Louisiana,” and will participate in the panel, “Retention and Redemption: Responsibly Servicing Your Tax Lien Portfolio.” Archon Information Systems will also participate in the conference’s exhibition with their product, CivicSource®. More information about the conference can be found at www.taxlientalk.com.
“I am grateful that GFI, the New York-based conference host, selected New Orleans as its venue for the First Annual Tax Lien Investors Conference. Having the opportunity to educate national, as well as local, investors on Louisiana’s tax sale process at a locally hosted event, has the unintended consequence of showcasing to attendees a sampling of their preferential investments: tax lien-secured, real property,” Barrios commented.
Three executives from Archon Information Systems will take part in the 3 Day Startup New Orleans, an entrepreneurship education program designed for college students with an emphasis on learning by doing. Beau Button, Chief Operations Officer; William Sossamon, Chief Technology Officer; and Brian Danos, Chief Information Officer; will serve as mentors for the event held November 11th-13th. The New Orleans 3 Day Startup program was founded by UNO computer science professor Vassil Roussev.
The concept of 3 Day Startup is simple: start a technology company over the course of three days. Organizers rent work space for an entire weekend, recruit forty students with a wide range of backgrounds, cater food and drinks, invite top-notch entrepreneurs and investors, pick the best idea for a software startup during a Friday brainstorming session and release a minimal prototype by Sunday night. The goal is to build enough momentum among a network of motivated people to sustain the company beyond the weekend.
Twelve locally organized 3 Day Startup events in the United States and Europe have given rise to fourteen companies receiving $4 million in funding. Seven 3 Day Startup-originated companies have been accepted to accelerator and incubator programs.
3 Day Startup, a nonprofit organization based in Austin, was started in 2008 through the vision of several University of Texas students. For more information about 3 Day Startup New Orleans, visit http://neworleans.3daystartup.org/.
