TOMORROW: VLAB "Out of the Labs" Holiday Party

From: Michael C.
Sent on: Monday, December 6, 2010 4:26 PM
Almost SOLD OUT...we're at 280 - Get your tickets now!
Immerse yourself in the bleeding edge of technology and spend an evening with scientists from the Valley's elite research labs and discover the next wave of innovations waiting to be commercialized by passionate entrepreneurs.

Networking can be a drag so we're doing something a little different. Come join us at the award winning beautiful Autodesk Gallery, a space filled with inspiration and innovation to meet people who are actually interested in talking about what you want to talk about -- not just awkward small talk.

We're bringing the best and brightest scientists from Silicon Valley labs and having small group discussions that will be facilitated by our evening's host who will focus the topics discussed by each group. Topics will be based on VLAB's events in 2010, including cleantech, mobile, and more.

Once you've met the scientist or business person of your entrepreneurial dreams, wander over and connect with VLAB's extensive network of venture capital advisors and supporters from VC firms around the world.

VCs attending include Lightspeed Venture Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Canaan Partners, Partech International, The Halo Fund, BlueRun Ventures, Austral Capital Partners, iGlobe Partners, and more.

In a discussion led by Richard G. Caro, Founder and CEO, TangibleFuture Inc, some of the elite researchers and top executives from premier research labs such as PARC Research, SRI International and Lawrence Livermoore discuss & present cutting edge technologies developed in their labs.

There will be plenty of wine from Marita's Vineyard and hors d'oeuvres.

Time: 6:00pm to 8:30pm
