The Founder Showcase, now in it's 13th edition, is TheFunded.com's pitch and networking event for early-stage startups and investors. To kick off 2013, the first Showcase of the new year will be an exclusive, investor-focused event centered around the theme: “The Future of Funding".
What are the most radical trends we are seeing in angel investment and venture capital? Was the dreaded "Series-A Crunch" overblown, or just getting started? How will crowdfunding mature in 2013 and beyond? On March 27th, we will gather top investors to discuss these issues, and provide their thoughts on what to expect for tomorrow.
And, we have just confirmed our first keynote speaker: Chris Dixon, Investing Partner at Andreessen Horowitz. Before recently moving to the Bay Area to become their newest Partner, Chris was a leader of the burgeoning New York City startup scene, where he co-founded, and was the former CEO of two startups; SiteAdvisor (acquired by McAfee in 2006), and Hunch (acquired by eBay in 2011). As an investor, Chris also co-founded Founder Collective, a seed venture fund, where he made early stage investments in GroupMe, Buzzfeed, Betaworks, and MakerBot. He also recently won a Crunchie for "2012 Angel of the Year" to recognize his stellar track record as an angel investor, with a personal portfolio that includes Foursquare, Kickstarter, Stripe, Warby Parker, Pinterest, OMGPOP, Behance, Stack Overflow, and more.
Reduced price tickets for the event end tomorrow, March 8th, and as a reader of TheFunded, you get an additional 20% off here. That's barely $100 a ticket for Founders & CEOs.
I hope to see you there.PRIVATE: Members Only
