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 tonight..so stay tuned…
And I hope you’ll come! It’s not too late to sign up…
