Event Recap: San Francisco, May 2018

Once again, we had an incredible time as 500 Startups hosted us in their amazing San Francisco office. Additionally, without WSGR and Colliers continued support of startup founders, we wouldn’t be able to do this without them! Thank you everyone for your support! Our sponsors ran the tables this evening while everyone watched the Warriors play the Rockets for the NBA Western Conference Finals. With [...]

Event Recap: San Francisco, December 2017

  Pulling off a 40-person poker event requiring a 5-hour commitment during the holiday party season in a city swimming in holiday parties is tough. So we tried something different this year in the Bay Area -- pub night. And it was a blast. Not quite a full pitcher of beer each, but not far from it. Turns out that great conversations on a beautiful [...]

Event Recap: San Francisco, August 2017

This month we were at medical device incubator, TheraNova. With all the high-tech innovation percolating around the space, it was a great environment and a great vibe for a gathering of startups founders. Unusually, the winners circle this month is decidedly stacked toward the folks who make these events possible: an organizer, a sponsor and a host. Can't remember another time where that happened, but [...]

Doh!  In fact, the only picture I have of the event is the one that Wissam Tabbara (founder/CEO of Clever Nudge) took when he arrived for the event.  Thanks Wissam! We were back at 500 Startups this month. This [...]
