Our buttoned-down and moneyed East Coast friends might want to check out the upcoming Enterprise 2.0 Conference from June 9 to 12 in Boston, where businesses wonks will be arguing about how to get real work done with Web tools. Like the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco last month, this conference will feature a Launchpad session that pits a few Web 2.0 companies against each other in rapid-fire pitches.

Right now, the Conference is asking for video submissions for the Launchpad, and you can check out the entries as they come in on the Launchpad page. So far, there are only two entries (Truviso and Nuospace), both of which make online services geared for corporate needs. You can also submit your own company for the Launchpad session, but the deadline is coming up fast: it's Wednesday, May 7.

You can get $100 off admission to the full conference, or a free exhibits-only pass, by signing up here with the priority code, "CMBMEB03."
