First Round Capital visits Vancouver for coffee

Posted by Rob Lewis

Philadelphia's First Round Capital just announced that they're coming to Vancouver to host an Office Hours event. 

The First Round Capital team had such a good time, at our inaugural Office Hours, that we’ve decided to make it a semi-regular practice. Back in October, Josh Kopelman, Rob Hayes and myself met with more than 50 entrepreneurs. The energy from the event proved what we already knew: the economic downturn hasn’t dampened the entrepreneurial spirit.

On January 15th, we’ll be partnering with our good friends at W Media Ventures to host an Office Hours in Vancouver. Chris Fralic and Kent Goldman will represent First Round Capital, with Boris Wertz of W Media Ventures acting as the local host. And just like the original Palo Alto edition, we’d love to meet with entrepreneurs, people thinking about becoming entrepreneurs or folks who would like join a start-up. We’ll be available for a bunch of informal ~15 minute chats. Again, there’s no agenda. We’ll provide the napkins to write on and the coffee to keep you warm while you wait.

FRC Office Hours Vancouver takes place on Thursday, January 15th from 4-6pm at Agro Cafe at 1207 Hamilton Street in Yaletown. If you'd like to drop by, be sure to fill out this quick form - while it's not required, I'm sure it will help get you in the door.
