Have you heard? Spirits are down.
It’s been difficult to avoid news of layoffs in BC this year, which has disheartened some. However, TiE Vancouver is bringing a solution!
The not-for-profit angel investor forum funding Canadian entrepreneurs is hosting a very topical panel discussion: How to thrive during a downturn using lessons from founders who have already been through one.
Speakers for this upcoming panel include Farid Dordar, who exited after founding PerfectMind; Catherine Dah, who exited after founding Beanworks; and Mark Cunningham, a serial entrepreneur with multiple successful exits.
The panel will be moderated by Maninder Dhaliwal, Founding Chair of TiE Vancouver Angels. Techcouver is the official media sponsor for the event.
“Our goal is to bridge Canadian entrepreneurs to global investors, and to provide Canadian investors access to global startups by leveraging the world’s most extensive investor network,” organizers say of TiE, which holds regular networking and educational events throughout the year, most of which are open to public.
This particular panel will be the first from TiE Vancouver’s CXO Series, which is focused on learning, mentoring, and networking events for operators of startups and scale-ups.
The in-person event kicks off with a TiE Sponsor & Charter Member VIP reception followed by the speaker panel and an hour of networking. Register online to attend.
TiE was founded in Silicon Valley in 1992 by entrepreneurs with roots in South Asia, and is currently spread over 62 chapters in 14 countries with 15,000 membership consisting of Angels, VCs, Private Equity, entrepreneurs, and service providers.
