About Event

Join us for an engaging and informative evening curated for NYC founders. This event is a collaboration between Union Square Ventures (USV) and Las Olas Venture Capital (LOVC)

​Secure your spot for an evening of learning, networking, and growth. We look forward to hosting you, sharing our insights, and igniting conversations among the brightest minds in the NYC venture and entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Event Format and Schedule:

  • 6:00 PM: Doors open for founders and guests.

  • 7:00 PM: Fireside chat with LOVC's Founding Partner, Mark Volchek, and USV Partner, Jared Hecht. The discussion will revolve around fundraising tips, strategies for raising extension rounds, follow-on capital, and balancing growth and fundraising efforts. Gain valuable insights into the 2024 VC market outlook through an open discussion, complemented by a live Q&A session where founders can seek personalized business development and fundraising guidance. Engage actively with polls and live participation.

  • 7:50 PM - 9:00 PM: Q&A, individual discussions, and networking continue. Engage in deeper conversations complemented by light bites.

Our primary goal is to engage the NYC SaaS community, providing a curated space for startups and founders to connect with us and each other. We aim for every attendee to leave the event with:

  1. Two New Connections: We believe in the power of networking. Every founder should establish at least two new, meaningful relationships supporting their journey forward.

  2. Actionable Insights: Whether it's a pivotal fundraising strategy or founder-specific advice, we want each participant to learn something impactful that will make a significant difference in their personal journey or business.

Who Should Attend:

​This event is tailored for extraordinary NYC founders seeking to connect with other founders and investors from USV and LOVC and navigate the complexities of business development, growth, and fundraising within the venture capital landscape.

We look forward to hosting you and engaging with the best and brightest NYC entrepreneurial leaders.
