I'm sponsoring a seminar that a friend is doing on how to find, pitch/present to West Coast VC's. I really haven't seen anything like it in NYC and it could be helpful to some of you. It's not my standard kind of event - its a structured full day of intensive coaching for 10 entrepreneurs. Personally, my connections aren't deep in the valley so I hope I'll learn from it. I'm moderating a little panel during lunch with a few investors and Nate Brochin (founder of Rare Medium and built company to $4Billion market cap). Rebekah Wu from righthandpartners.com is putting on the event - she's personally been very helpful helping introduce me to foundations for my non profit (something i knew nothing about) and she's helped raised $160 million over the years.?
The catch is that it is expensive, as its a full day event and she's coming in from the West Coast. (please be light on ?criticizing me for trying to promote an expensive event - if you want to find financing in the valley it will be helpful and cheaper than a wasted flight and hotel stay. It's $1200 for a morning to night intensive coaching sessions. If you're interested in attending, you can send me a note or contact Rebekah directly at?[address removed]. I believe in her that I'm sponsoring the event which is not something you'll see from me often. If you're not interested, i apologize for for the intrusion.?
