Event Recap: Los Angeles, May 2018

Another super fun and super productive event this month. We were sorry to hear from our scheduled special guest, Annie Luchsinger from Anthos Capital, that she fell under the weather and couldn't make it. We missed her awesomeness but we will get Annie rescheduled for a future event. Luckily, I ran into Martin Tobias a few hours before the event and he agreed to join [...]

Event Recap: Seattle, April 2018

In the game of poker, a "full house" is powerful. The same is true for Poker 2.0: last night was a full house... and that was powerful. The energy came both from the sheer number of attendees (~65) and the fact that our special guest was one of the premier VCs in Seattle, Jason Stoffer from Maveron. Jason's prezo was perfect, with lots of real-world [...]

Event Recap: Los Angeles, April 2018

April marks our third official Startup Haven Founders Dinner and Poker 2.0 event. At 12 attendees, the event was still 'intimate'. But 12 represents a 3x increase over our launch event in January... a great result and a sign that we are fulfilling our mission. What mission? Well, 12 attendees means 12 x 12 opportunities to make a valuable connection -- get help, give help, [...]

Event Recap: Silicon Valley, April 2018

Fun, random things always happen at our events, and this month was no exception. Our host, DROdio, treated us to an auditory journey through some EDM tunes, and after taking down the win (and with the slightest bit of cajoling), Roman showed off his EDM shuffle on the dance floor! We may need to institute a new tradition: the winner’s dance ?     Congratulations to [...]
