I am very happy to announce that First Round Capital, one of the most successful VC in the consumer internet space, is coming to Vancouver and will host an Office Hours event together with W Media on Jan 15 from 4pm to 6pm. For all other details (what the heck is an Office Hour event?) I simply re-blogged Kent’s post on The Cornice.com below. Looking forward to seeing many of you next Thursday at the Agro Cafe!
Here is Kent’s post:
The First Round Capital team had such a good time, at our inaugural Office Hours, that we’ve decided to make it a semi-regular practice. Back in October, Josh Kopelman, Rob Hayes and myself met with more than 5o entrepreneurs. The energy from the event proved what we already knew: the economic downturn hasn’t dampened the entrepreneurial spirit.
On January 15th, we’ll be partnering with our good friends at W Media Ventures to host an Office Hours in Vancouver. Chris Fralic and Kent Goldman will represent First Round Capital, with Boris Wertz of W Media Ventures acting as the local host. And just like the original Palo Alto edition, we’d love to meet with entrepreneurs, people thinking about becoming entrepreneurs or folks who would like join a start-up. We’ll be available for a bunch of informal ~15 minute chats. Again, there’s no agenda. We’ll provide the napkins to write on and the coffee to keep you warm while you wait.
When: Thursday, January 15th, 4:00pm-6:00pm
Where: Agro Cafe, 1207 Hamilton Street, Vancouver BC V6B 6K3
We’re hoping to keep the atmosphere casual, but we don’t want to waste anyone’s time. Help us load balance the meeting times by letting us know when you plan to arrive by filling out this quick form (not required but helpful).
Looking forward to seeing you in the Great White Canadian North… More FRC Offices Hours coming soon to a coffee shop near you!
