My new role with Techstars brings me to startup communities around the world, but deep down I still put our local community front and center.
To that end, I have a week of Techstars double-whammy for you.
First, I convinced David Cohen (co-founder and co-CEO) to come visit the area and he and I will be doing a fireside chat at CED’s Tech Conference on Tuesday at 3:45pm. This is a must attend event for anyone that has even the mildest interest in technology, startups, investment and community building as John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins fame will also be doing a fireside chat around 1pm. Seeing John and David share their wisdom and investment experiences should not be missed.
If you have a startup idea or are working on your startup and want to share your thoughts with two noted Techstars investors, the opportunity is yours in both Raleigh and Durham on Tuesday (19th) and Wednesday (20th) respectively.
Two of my newest, bestest friends, Natty Zola and Amos Schwartzfarb – each one of them a Managing Director of a Techstars Accelerator program, will be holding office hours and it is free to sign up and either pitch your idea or pepper them with questions on how they can help you grown your company. These guys have seen a lot and have much to share.
