Startup Camp 2 is a response to the overwhelming enthusiasm expressed by attendees at Startup Camp 1, held in November 2006. For this year's event, Sun has incorporated feedback from Startup Camp 1 to further improve the conference and better cater to the interests of the startup community. As the following quotes attest, Startup Camp 1 attendees particularly appreciated the collegial, informal, interactive format of the event.

“The value of the format comes in the ability to provide the attendees with an intimate experience where people must talk to each other. This conference did the best I've seen yet at getting a large group of people to talk amongst themselves. The more it can do that, the better it will be and the greater buzz it will generate.”

“I very much appreciated the great support that Sun and the other partner companies provided in terms of the venue, the causal atmosphere, and the lack of any real pressured marketing. When attending no-charge events in the past, I usually have to fend off marketing people at every turn and I was pleasantly surprised to find the staff members from sponsoring companies attending the sessions and participating in the discussions rather than trying to sign me up for services or promoting their wares in the sessions.”
