Columbia Venture Community On-Campus Social & Talk (Nov)
Tuesday, November 13, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
New York, NY
Are you interested in entrepreneurship?
Curious about starting a company?
Have an idea but not sure what to do with it?
Want to meet a woman who's done it all?
Come to the CVC On-Campus Social and meet Anna Curran:
Anna Curran is a senior member of the PlumAlley.co team, a site where you can buy products from female founded companies. She has extensive background in the startup world with Start Up Weekend and the Kaufmann Foundation. She is also a CEO and founder of Cook Book Create.
Anna will speak about Plum Alley, how she made the move to startups, and discuss steps you can take to break into the startup world. There will be Q&A and you'll get to chat one-on-one afterwards.
We'll be using a service called Cnvrge and run everything using the miracle of text messaging. It'll make intros for you - like the world's greatest party host.
When you arrive, you'll check in via SMS, and immediately get a text telling you who to meet next, and where in the room to meet them. Five minutes later, you'll get another text. Infinite loop.
You can skip rounds if you want to keep chatting with someone, and jump back into the “pool” when you want to get a text and meet a new person. With each meeting, you can rest assured you'll automatically get an intro email (complete with the other person's bio and round in which you met).
Come with a fully charged cell phone and be ready to learn and socialize!
* Feel free to bring a guest (doesn't have to be a Columbia/Barnard student).
