Calling London - A Volcanic Opportunity
What a bizarre world we live in. My partner, Chris Fralic, has found his trip to London "indefinitely extended" due to a volcano in Iceland. So he's decided to put together a last minute "Office Hours" tomorrow, Sunday. I know it's last minute - but it's worth a try. If you are an entrepreneur in London (or thinking about becoming one), I'd suggest you sign up and stop by:
DATE: Sunday, April 18th, 2010
TIME: 1300 to 1500 (That's 1PM to 3PM for the rest of us)
LOCATION: White Bear Yard, 2nd Floor, 144a Clerkenwell Road EC1R 5DF LINK
You can SIGN UP HERE
What can you expect at Office Hours London? The chance to meet up with someone from First Round Capital to get to know us a bit better, and for us to get to know you and your idea or company. You'll also have a chance to mingle and interact with folks from other startups, which could be worth the alone -and we'll try to have some tea and coffee and snacks as well.
Have we ever funded a company we've met at Office Hours? Yes we have, in fact it was just over a year ago at Office Hours New York that we met David Roth, CEO of AppFirst. We invested along with FirstMark and just yesterday they officially launched at Under The Radar and won the audience and judges award in their category.
Given the short timeframe, I'd appreciate any help in retweeting this or forwarding this to London-based entrepreneurs. Thanks!
