Hi 106'ers,

Our good friends at OC Tech Startup are organizing a MUST attend session on fundraising:

Startup Fundraising Bootcamp: You're doing it all wrong!

This is their first event in collaboration with Startup OC and Chapman University. This meet up will be the first in many upcoming events hosted at Chapman, in cooperation with The Leatherby Center for Entrepreneurship at Chapman University.

The tentative agenda for this no-bullshit, 2-hour session is as follows:

  • Why you shouldn't raise money - The value in bootstrapping, and the realities of fundraising.
  • Fundraising strategy - What is it, and do you have one?
  • The games we play - Real world games, tactics, traps and counter-moves for successful fundraising

The panel will include Sean Ellis, Alex Banayan, and Eric Jackson; three guys who are no stranger to the fundraising hustle, representing the perspectives of founders (Sean and Eric), VC's (Alex), and those who are disrupting the VC game (Eric).

More details to follow, but please RSVP ASAP here:


Limited seating, and they are sure to pack the house.


all the best,
