Just a quick note to get the word out on two upcoming outreach sessions that I'm participating in...it's a blast to get out and talk to shiny new entrepreneurs. Feel free to get the word out to those that would find these events useful:
1. VC3 "gives Stanford entrepreneurs an opportunity to pitch their business ideas to top Silicon Valley venture capitalists for 3 minutes." Any Stanford student (or active Stanford affiliate) is eligible to participate in this energetic bout of VC speed dating. Interested pitchers can apply here. Stanford's Asia-Pacific Student Entrepreneurship Society (ASES) is sponsoring VC3 as part of Stanford Entrepreneurship Week, and the event is being held this Friday, February 20th from 1:30 - 5:30PM at Stanford's Wallenberg Auditorium. If you're a VC that would like to volunteer for this event, drop the VC3 team a note.
2. First Round Capital's Office Hours is hitting the road in March for SXSW Interactive. Kent Goldman, Rob Hayes, and I will be co-hosting Office Hours SXSW on Monday, March 16th from 11AM - 1PM at Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant. Come on out and meet us if you've got an entrepreneurial bent - we’ll be available for a bunch of informal 10-minute chats. We’ll provide the napkins to write on and a few pitchers of margaritas. Meetings are first come, first served, so help us to space out meeting times by signing up to let us know if you plan to attend in the first or second hour.
