Ottawa – Dec 3, 2009

theottawanetworkAllan Isfan and Rick O’Connor are hosting another Founders & Funders – Ottawa on December 3, 2009. This is a great event for the Ottawa community. The goal continues to be connecting the people who start companies with the people that fund them. It’s a very simple piece of the social fabric in the emerging technology ecosystem. And it’s fantastic to see the Ottawa crew being significantly more active.

The event is “invitation only” and  is limited in terms of availability. That is there are a limited number of available spaces, and Allan and Rick are currating the guest list like any good dinner party. If you are a startup in Ottawa, or you are a funder drop them a note.

Just a sidebar on “funder”, this means active funders, not necessarily just high net worth individuals. The event is best for individuals that are active, i.e., have deployed capital in the past 18 months. And if you haven’t deployed capital, you have a very good reason (waiting for previous investments to mature; trying to hit an earn out, etc.).

If you’re in Ottawa on December 3 (and not at DemoCamp Toronto #24), here’s how you get involved.

The event is “by invitation only’ and is limited in terms of availability. If you would like to attend, please send Allan Isfanallan.isfan@favequest.com or Rick O’Connor rickoco@theottawanetwork.com a note and let them know who you are and why you should participate.
