PandoDaily is introducing a new monthly event series called PandoMonthly, sponsored by Sequoia Capital.
The goal is simple: We want anyone-- from celebrity investors to a smart kid who arrived in town yesterday-- to have a place to come once a month to connect with like-minded people. We'll have pizza and beer and a Q&A with a big-name guest. Maybe once we get going, we'll add in some quick demos. Then more pizza and beer. We'll hold these events at our co-working home i/o Ventures in the Mission and hopefully, we all go out in the Mission afterwards and continue the conversations. If it reminds you of the early TechCrunch events held in Mike's living room, then we're doing it right.
Our first guest will be Michael Arrington. Mike probably doesn't need an introduction for most of you. He's the founder of TechCrunch and the CrunchFund. He's been called a king-maker, and he's been called all sorts of nasty things too. We call him an investor, board member and contributor. The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with Pizza and Beer, followed by a Fireside Chat with Mike about his new life as an investor, and then he'll answer your questions about anything he's legally able to talk about. Maybe things he's not legally able to talk about if he drinks enough beer or he's feeling particularly Arrington-y that night.
(FYI: There are two Parking lots close to the venue, one at 3255 21st Street between Valencia and Mission and one at 67A Lapidge Street at 19th. The event is also walking distance from the 16th Street BART station.)
