Great time at LAVA’s Meet the VC event

Last night we participated in and sponsored the LA Venture Association’s 8th annual Meet the VC event. The event is a great way for startup founders to learn more about what VC and angel investors look for in potential startup investments. The startup founders and investors all seemed to have a great time during the event itself and at the LAVA at the Beach open networking part of the evening that immediately followed.



EXIT RAMP: How Acquisitions are Driving Innovation in the Enterprise

I’m pleased to announce that I will be moderating a panel at Silicon Beach at the University of Southern California next Friday, October 14th.

The panel is called “EXIT RAMP: How Acquisitions are Driving Innovation in the Enterprise” and is focused on how early stage companies are increasingly targets of acquisition for Fortune 1000 companies. What is driving this trend? How do large corporations identify startups that provide strategic value – and what does this mean for entrepreneurs?

For more information, including the full schedule for the day and tickets, visit: 2016 Silicon Beach at USC.
