Office hours with Bob Borches of Opus capital-Early stage VC fund

Come and learn from an expert in mobile and consumer marketing veteran, Bob Borchers, Partner at Opus Capital. (http://www.opuscapitalventures.com/)

Bob is focused on investments in mobile applications and services as well as adjacent opportunities in hardware and software. Prior to joining Opus Capital, Bob was part of the original iPhone team at Apple and was instrumental in the development, launch and global expansion of the revolutionary iPhone, iPhone OS, App Store and iPhone 3GS. Before Apple, he pioneered mobility solutions at FusionOne and spent six years at Nokia where he co-founded the Vertu business.

Several lucky founders will be selected for a turn on the “hot seat,” where each will have five minutes of direct interaction with Bob, to ask questions and receive direct feedback, specifically about their startup idea, execution, or positioning.

All founders in attendance will benefit from hearing the questions, responses, and overall insight provided by the featured expert.

PLEASE NOTE! there will be a selection process to attend this exclusive event and only a handful of women founders will be selected to be in the 'hot seat"
(link with questionnaire will be sent)


Also note, this is NOT A PITCHING OPPORTUNITY, but a chance to get real feedback from an expert and founder of an early stage Investment firm.

We hope to see you there!
