Our March Founders Poker event was hosted at Node’s beautifully nerdy space at the intersection of SF’s vibrant North Beach, Chinatown, and Jackson Square neighborhoods. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality, Node! And a huge thank you, as always, to our sponsors Colliers and WSGR – we couldn’t do this without you!

I think we gave SXSW a run for its money, tonight! We had a great turnout, and had nonstop interesting conversations between founders involved in cannabis, blockchain, food, health, news, AI/ML, and more.

In case you’ve ever wondered, busting out of a poker tourney doesn’t mean the end of the fun, especially at Founders Poker. When they busted early, Chas of Liquid Ventures and Mike of Herbi took a break to do a dumpling run for the rest of the table. Besides winning our undying love and appreciation, Mike bought back in at the break, and wound up taking home second place! Dumpling karma is real 🙂

Congratulations to the winners! See you all next month.
