In December 2014, a small group of us at Ven51, Bullpen, and Vator organized the inaugural “Post-Seed Conference,” with keynote fireside chats with the likes of Keith Rabois, Chris Dixon, Peter Thiel, and Naval Ravikant. (Click here to see all the videos and wrap-ups.) The day was filled with tons of inside information from investors/practitioners about all the ins and outs of investing in the pre-, seed-, and post-seed stages. And, we had a large turnout of founders who are trying to get an edge about how the investment world is moving — in real time.
So, we will do it again: Mark your calendars for December 1, 2015 in San Francisco: The Second Annual Post-Seed Conference
A few caveats about this event, so please take notice:
- Price: The price is initially high because we have decided to keep this as an invitation-only event to start. We want to make sure founders and angel investors can attend, and I have a whole stack of comp codes to give out. Please ping me (firstlast at gmail) and briefly explain who you are and why you’d like to attend.
- Keynotes: We are proud that our keynote/fireside chats for this event will be Alfred Lin (Sequoia), John Doerr (Kleiner Perkins), Vinod Khosla (Khosla Ventures), and Scott Kupor (Andreessen Horowitz). Wow, that is an amazing lineup!
- Content: We will have more time for meeting people this year, and fewer sessions (relatively). We are just beginning to outline the sessions now. More soon, but of course it will all be focused on how the seed stages are evolving.
