What if I have a great idea for a panel or workshop or keynote talk? Can I host it?

No, we don't do panels, workshops or keynotes. 

PANELS: More speakers does not mean more tickets.  More speakers does not even mean better perspectives. Get one speaker (or 2 founders) and dive really really deep.  Fireside chats are deep dives into what a top entrepreneur or VC is an expert in.

WORKSHOPS and KEYNOTES:  These are terrific offerings to your community but not something we do in our local chapters.  Let others in the community offer these, or if you have a desire to do it then you can do so under a different event brand (in addition to your SG events) but those events are not to be listed in your SG chapter.  Same thing goes for pitch events, competitions, etc.  We just do fireside chats.
