About this event

Hi! We're the folks behind Wefunder and XX Venture Partners. In August, Wefunder selected the five of us, Adolf Akuffo-Afful, Ebony Miller-Wesley, Michael Thaney, Sylvia Okoye, and Yasmin Mattox to be XX Venture Partners.  We formed Valley 2 Valley and want to connect Silicon Valley to Genesee Valley. Teleportation may still be science fiction, but we think what we’ve got cooked up is a pretty good stand-in for now.  We are hosting our founder gatherings to talk about the things that really matter. Now, we want to spread the magic to more people!

We try to avoid talking about work (except how it relates to our passions). Instead, we dive into meaningful, deep, and authentic stories; to make real connections with others. With s'mores! Because why not?
