I hope you can join me in Washington, DC, on Thursday, May 24, 2012, 5:30 PM To 8:30 PM for a talk and event sponsored by the HBS Club of Washington, DC. RSVP required; No money can be taken at door
As I’ve previously blogged, I will soon publish the first formal study of best practices of VCs in improving portfolio company value. The objective of the research is to define a blueprint for how investors can help portfolio companies succeed through operational (non-financial) support, including but not limited to facilitating shared services, recruiting, knowledge sharing, and enhancing management skills. I will discuss both my value-creation research and how ff Venture Capital addresses this challenge. You can see a preview of the presentation at http://goo.gl/K4dDc .
Angel Investing Background: This event will also be used to re-launch the angel investing activity of the HBS Club of Washington DC. I’ll briefly discuss the history and growth of HBS Angels of NY, including the new Venture Capital Access Program (joint with the NAIC). People who are interested in angel investing, and especially those interested in taking an active role in our group, are urged to come to this event and/or to contact Bob Kolodney, Coordinator of our Entrepreneurship RoundTable (BobkoLive(@)gmail.com), Sonny Bloom, President of the Club (bloom_sonny(@)hotmail.com), or Dante Disparte, Vice-President of the Club (ddisparte(@)hotmail.com).
