Springboard Fireside Chat and more
On Wednesday, October 23rd, I am looking forward to a fireside chat at Springboards Global Forum. I am sitting down with Eric Hippeau of Lerer Ventures to talk about early stage investing in NYC.
Through out the day there are different events and conversations. There is an opportunity to meet 10 early stage tech entrepreneurs that are part of the 2013 accelerator program at Springboard. Past companies include Zipcar, Constant Contact, iRobot, and Minute Clinic. They have been at this for the past 13 years and have obviously picked some winners over the years.
Here is a link to some discounted tickets for readers of this blog.
Springboard is dedicated to supporting high growth technology companies led by women. Through their programs they use their network of advisors and innovators to work with many of the companies that go through their pipeline. It is those connections that have helped their portfolio companies raise over $6.2 billion in financing and in turn has created thousands of jobs. Impressive.
Looking forward to sitting down with Eric and discussing the opportunites that both of us have had working with countless early stage companies.
