Startup/Investor Networking Group (Unique Format)

From: Rich H.
Sent on: Tuesday, November 6, 2007 11:17 PM
Hey everyone,?

?

I'm Richie Hecker. I'm a super serial entrepreneur. ?A few months ago I started a novel investor/startup networking event series.?We have a unique format for the meetings. No business plans, ppts and no formal pitching is allowed. Instead each meeting we have 1 speaker talk for 5 minutes (last time we had a VC and before that an entrepreneur that just closed an angel round) and then Q&A and then anyone can get up and ask a question or share an idea with the group who can then chime in with comments, questions, ideas, advice, introductions and capital offers. The idea is to build community and real value add - hopefully leading to people getting together outside the group and doing deals - instead of a stressed pitch or die environment. So far, we've gotten the kinks out of the model and have had some good success with it and are now looking to selectively expand the group.?

?

If anyone is interested, please email me your bio to [address removed], it is by invite/board approval only (sorry we need to keep it tight) and hopefully I can invite you in. Our next meeting will be December 12th and so far everyone who has gone to one of our meetings has loved it. We're just starting to slowly open up the group now.?

?

Sincerely yours,

?
