Connecting with CONNECTpreneur

31 May Connecting with CONNECTpreneur


This Thursday, I’ll be attending the infamous CONNECTpreneur event, hosted by Tech2000 and LORE Systems, and their leader, Tien Wong, who barely needs an introduction, alongside various supporting organizations who make this event such a memorable event.

The format is as follows: we’ll hear from a keynote speaker, Rick Rudman, who is the CEO of Vocus, who recently announced a merger agreement with GTCR Valor Merger Sub, Inc., an affiliate of GTCR LLC (“GTCR”), in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $446.5 million.

Then 6 companies that are currently in fundraising mode will present their business models to a room full of investors and partners that support the entrepreneurial community. They will announce the companies just beforehand, to increase the suspense…I’m hoping to break the news stay tuned…

And I hope you’ll come! It’s not too late to sign up…

Other speakers include Jonathan Perelli, Derek Coburn and Jennifer Boss, before we hear from a panel on the latest trends in Venture Capital and Early Stage Financing. The panel includes:

Moderator: Jonathan Aberman, Managing Director, Amplifier Venture Partners; Founder, TandemNSI; President, Foundercorps
Mark Levine, General Partner, Core Capital Partners
Todd Klein, Managing Partner, Legend Ventures
Hank Torbert, Founder and Managing Partner, Avondale Ventures
Ed Barrientos, Serial angel and entrepreneur; CEO, Brazen Careerist

CONNECTpreneur is a quarterly networking mashup, which has been attended by over 2000 business leaders in the past 2 1/2 years.

It is one of the most impressive networking events…do join us, and stay tuned for the companies who will be showcased…
