The Los Angeles Venture Association (LAVA) held its fourth annual "Meet the VCs" night on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. TroyGould co-sponsored the evening, and lawyers from the firm facilitated meetings between the VCs and the entrepreneurs.
The event allowed over seventy curated companies to meet thirty-two venture capitalists and major angel groups. Unlike the usual fast-pitch format, "Meet the VCs" allows the startups ample time to network and gain insight into how the various funding sources invest (e.g. what fits into their portfolios, timing of investments, etc.).
The event was held at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica.
