I will be a panelist at The Hatchery’s “Are You Serious?” pitch event Wed Sept 19

The HatcheryI am happy to report that I am scheduled to be a panelist at The Hatchery’s (@thehatchery) upcoming “Are You Serious?” pitch event.  The format is what you’ve come to expect: a handful of entrepreneurs have ~5 minutes each to explain their early stage startups and the panelists respond with polite-but-brutally-honest (and hopefully productive) feedback.

I’ve attended many, many of these kinds of event and even pitched in front of these panels a few times but this will be my first time on the other side of the desk.

My co-panelists are Sachin Jade of Klifer Capital and Kirill Sheynkman of RTP Ventures (LinkedIn, AngelList)

The event will be held on Wednesday, September 19 at 6pm at Mercy College (66 W 35th St, 7th floor).  I hope you can make it.
