Event Recap: San Diego, July 2019

The July event was awesome! It was the last time we'll be in HouseCall Pro's space, because it's their old space! They're moving on up, and we'll be back there early next year in the new digs. A banh mi sandwich, nice cold beer, good people, and poker. What else could you want?! While we said goodbye to a fellow San Diego entrepreneur (as Derek [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, June 2019

Jeff Burg was kind enough to come out of sabbatical and show up to his office to host Startup Poker in North County San Diego last night (by the way don't tell anyone, he's not suppose to step foot into the office on sabbatical). It was an intimate group this month, so we decided to play a sit-and-go for the month's title, and start a [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, January 2019

Happy New Year!! We started off a little later than normal this month thinking you were in the hustle of the new year— were we right or would you rather jump right in to it? Let us know! After months of changing it up, it was delicious having Thai food amongst friends hosted up at HouseCall Pro this month. How lucky are we to get [...]

Event Recap: Silicon Valley, June 2019

Our June edition of Founders Poker was hosted at Founders Institute in Palo Alto. Thanks to Adeo and the FI team for being such wonderful hosts! And thanks to our sponsors, WSGR and Colliers, for their enduring support for founders everywhere.

Event Recap: Silicon Valley, May 2019

Our May edition of Founders Poker was hosted at Armory's downtown San Mateo office. Thanks Armory! And thanks, as always, to our sponsors WSGR and Colliers.

Event Recap: Silicon Valley, April 2019

Thanks to Nordic Innovation House for hosting us once again in downtown Palo Alto, just a block off University Ave. And thanks, as always, to our sponsors WSGR and Colliers – we couldn't do this without you. This evening proved, once again, that a chip and a chair is all you need. Bobby, in town from Tampa, blinded down to two chips with four others [...]

Event Recap: Portland, March 2019

What a more fitting way to welcome Spring in Portland than having a lot of fresh new faces at the March game. From seasoned startup veterans just completing sales of their companies to founders just prepping for launch, the new stories they had to tell ran the gamut. Special thanks to CJ from VinoVoyage for providing her expert wine knowledge (and a delicious California Syrah). [...]

Event Recap: Portland, May 2019

It's always a pleasure to have Mr. StartupHaven, Bob Crimmins, himself in the house. Turns out he knows a thing or two about and played his way to a second place finish at the Portland poker game. The top honors went to Patrick Ezell of Bridgetown AI. Special thanks to the folks at Cloudability who stayed behind to "chaperone" us for the evening! See you [...]

Event Recap: Portland, January 2019

We had a lot of new faces to start 2019 at the PDX startup poker event. Bart Bergquist showed off his amazing convertible travel bag, and the team from Cocacao joined us for the first time, makers of the most amazing three ingredient chocolates you've ever tasted. It looked like beginners luck was going to take some of the newbies all the way to the [...]
