You’ve heard about Founders and Funders in Toronto (organized by David Crow) and in Montreal (organized by Austin Hill and Patrick Lauzon); well, its time for one in Ottawa. Allan Isfan of FaveQuest is organizing this event and targeting October 9th as the date of the dinner. If you haven’t heard of Founders and Founders, here is a description from Allan:
In essence, the event consists of bringing together funders (VC, Angels …) and founders for several hours of networking around a drink and dinner. Each individual in attendance is vetted by the organizers to ensure the highest quality of attendees (a bit less harsh on the guys with bags of money). The event begins with drinks and proceeds to dinner with one or two brief "speeches". No presentations, no demos but lots of elevator pitches.
If you want to apply to be invited to the event (whether you are a Founder or Funder), please get in touch with Allan directly ( @isfan on Twitter or just message him on Facebook – and of course, you could also use classic email – allan.isfan [ - at - ] favequest [ - . - ] com.
Update: This is still a tentative arrangement and interest is being gauged. If you are interested in attending and/or helping to organize this event, do get in touch with Allan.
