I am now planning my European VC Roundtable & Book Tour and am seeking law firms, accelerators or large corporates that can host these events as well as cash sponsors and media partners that can help promote the events. I’m also seeking sponsors for my small VIP dinners in each of the European cities listed below.
I have already organized VC Roundtable events in most of these cities in 2009 and 2010 and I know most of the active VCs and many relevant folks and expect 100 to 200 participants for each event.
The format of the events is a lot of networking with 1 hour of content.
If you have a venue that can accommodate at least 70 seated participants or if you would like to be a cash sponsor for one of our events please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1.650.475.6877. Also send me any ideas of how to promote the events with local media partners such as via StartupDigest or any other relevant email lists that reach local entrepreneurs, angels and VCs.
I am now planning events in April, May and June in the following cities:
- London (I’m open to adding Oxford and Cambridge if someone can help organize)
- Saint Petersburg
I am also organizing a VIP dinner in each city the night before or after each book tour event with 10 to 20 VIPs that are very successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, VCs, head of M&A at big balance sheet buyers, family office execs or other investors in VC funds. I am seeking a wealth manager or bank to sponsor each of these private dinners. No agenda, no pitches, no presentations – just networking and sit down dinner in a private dinning room.
One more thing, happy new year. New Year’s Eve for entrepreneurs and investors happens from March 7 to 12 in Austin, Texas and it’s called SXSW. For those that have never participated in this one, Austin becomes the center of the entrepreneurial universe and it’s a 5 day party celebrating entrepreneurship. Georgetown Angels will be there with friends from every country in the world. Come and help us ring in the new year there.
Happy New Year!
