Allan 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.firstname.lastname@example.org or Rick O’Connor email@example.com a note and let them know who you are and why you should participate.
Allan Isfan of Favequest has taken up the challenge of connecting “the people that start companies, and the people that fund them” in Ottawa. This is the fourth regional venue. We’ve hosted events in Montreal and Toronto. The Communitech team is hosting a Founders & Funders in Waterloo on October 9, 2008. Ottawa is the next to pick up the torch.
Founders & Funders is a social event. It was conceived by the awesome Austin Hill and the preeminent Patrick Lauzon in Montreal. The goal was to provide a social setting to help bring the people that start companies and the people that fund them together. This is not a pitch event. It is an opportunity to find out who is doing and funding what in your region.
Founders & Funders is a social event aimed bringing together the people that start the next big successful company with the people that fund these companies in their earliest stages. The event is social. It is not a pitch fest. It is not a DemoCamp. It is an opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs and funders in your local community. The goal is to help facilitate opportunities for people to meet, share and build relationships that will grow into the NEXT BIG THING.
Founders and Funders is dedicated:
- to helping Canadian entrepreneurs to meet each other;
- meet potential funders: angel, VC or other money sources;
- to have fun;
- and see how we can help each other create the NEXT BIG successful company.
