VC Breakfast Club

VC Breakfast with Guest VC: Josh Breinlinger of SigmaWest

April 4, 2013

Sheppard Mullin Palo Alto

The VC Breakfast Club - at Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP
provides a terrific opportunity for up to 10 entrepreneurs to meet with a VC or Angel Group in a relaxed, informal setting, to build relationships and get valuable feedback on their startup idea. Participating entrepreneurs deliver an elevator pitch, and the guest VC provides immediate feedback, enabling fast, effective, accessible mentoring and relationship development.

Entrepreneurs will be given 5-10 minutes to discuss their business with the VC. Depending on the number of attendees for each event there may be more or less time to speak.

To get the most out of these breakfast meetings, attendees should be prepared to provide a clear, concise elevator pitch about their business, and be able to answer questions from the VC.

This event is co-sponsored by Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP along with SVForum.
