"Going from an idea to raising seed funding" by Eric Paley on 3/14 at 6PM

Hi everyone, 

We had a great turnout for the idea validation panel last month and are excited to announce the March meetup. This will be taking place next Monday, March 14th with Boston Venture Capitalist and former entrepreneur - Eric Paley! Eric will be giving a talk titled "Going from an idea to raising seed funding."

Eric is the managing partner of the Founder Collective, a seed-stage venture fund in Cambridge started by successful entrepreneurs. As an investor he's made investments in companies such as Uber, HotelTonight, and Skillshare. Prior to launching Founder Collective, Eric founded and successfully sold Brontes Technologies. 

Pivotal Labs in Kendall Square has kindly offered to host the event once again. Networking will take place at 6:00pm and the talk will start at 6:30pm and be followed by a Q&A. Pizza will be provided. Space is limited, so make sure to RSVP!

Also, we are starting a  slack channel for the Boston lean startup community. f you are interested in joining put your email in here:

As always, if you have any ideas or suggestions feel free to send them my way!

    I wish you recorded the panel and would share it on YouTube. People who couldn't attend, could benefit from it and it would also get publicity for your Meetup group and presenters.

    Does anyone know how to contact the Pivotal Boston office? I accidentally left a jacket at the office after this talk and have had no luck with online means.

    Great event. It was interesting to hear Eric's opinion, who has been on both sides of entrepreneurship - entrepreneur seeking for investments and VC that decide which company worth to be invested.

    Sorry I missed it. Didn't get off the wait list until 6:40. Next time I will just show up and wait. Looking forward to meeting and getting involved in Boston's startup community.

    It was great seeing so many people there tonight. Wish I could have met with more of you, but reach out if you'd like to connect. I enjoy meeting and working with people in Boston's startup community.

    Hi friends,

    You got one spot open ... I am sick and will not be able to attend the meet today. I understand it is a short notice but I chose not to spread my virus to fellow buddies and have decided to give a pass to this event

    Look forward to meeting summary... If we can have

    What's the cut off for the wait list? Trying to figure out if I have any chance of making it in.
