Our local TiE Vancouver chapter is hosting a series of learning, mentoring and networking events for operators of startups and scaleups.
After a series of sold-out events, they’re at it again on October 26th with a seminar and fireside chat on early stage fundraising and what founders need to know.
Startups need capital to grow, however the process of raising is often long, arduous, and complex; and even more so with the current economic climate.
The event kicks off with a TiE CXO seminar followed by a informal chat between TiE Vancouver’s Maninder Dhaliwal and Boris Wertz of Version One Ventures.
Wertz is founding partner of Version One and one of the top tech early-stage investors in North America. Born in Germany and based in Vancouver, Boris takes a wide-angle view to find great companies all across North America: from New York and Toronto to Seattle and LA.
Wertz is focused on crypto/web 3, climate/energy, marketplaces and SaaS, looking for the best teams who solve big problems in a unique way. As an investor and former entrepreneur, Boris knows when to push and when to ease off, while always remembering that he is an advisor, not a player.
Dhaliwal is the Managing Partner of Startup Studio – Accelerator & Venture Fund. She is the founding chair of TiE’s Incubation Lab, and serves on the global steering committee for TiE Global Angels – the largest angel investor network in the world.
TiE Vancouver is part of TiE Global Angels, an umbrella organization representing the TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs) chapters in North America and their affiliated angel groups.
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.
