Startup Poker 2.0 Event Basics

Capacity for this event is limited and poker seats are even more so. As such, not everyone who applies to attend will receive a ticket or a poker seat.

First preference for tickets will be given to full time founders working on venture-scalable startups and active startup investors.

A portion of the poker seats will be reserved for Startup Haven founder and investor members, in membership order (i.e., Level 2, Level 1, Level 0)

If you do receive a ticket, please do not bring uninvited guests.

The event free to attend, including food and drink, but all poker players are responsible for their buy-ins.
