In Person đź‘€ Tim Porter, Madrona What is the role of the future VC?

Sep 1, 2022, 1:00 – 3:00 AM

Madrona Venture Group, 999 3rd Ave 33rd floor, Seattle, 98104

We are back to in-person events. It has been a long journey over the last several years but it is time to start saying hello in person. Startup Grind is about creating friends and helping others first. We thought Tim Porter was a great start since he is one of those people who truly want to help others. He is Managing Director at Madrona Venture Group and has a long history of helping founders.

About this event

Tim Porter is Managing Director at Madrona Venture Group and has a long history of helping founders. What does that mean for you? Come to this event and hear from a long-time VC who has been through previous cycles of financial distress. We will be learning how he has helped others from slowing growth down to how to raise money in this environment. Tim is a wealth of information as is willing to share all the details.. (maybe not ALL the details) of past decisions. Come.... bring a pencil and paper to record all the valuable information.

In normal Seattle Startup Grind fashion, we will have free food and drinks for your enjoyment and many many great people that are looking forward to seeing each other in person. 

We can't wait to say hello to our old friends and meet new friends.
