Event Details

Nikhil Kalghatgi is surpassing my ideal as an NY venture capitalist.Softbank Capital's portfolio includes Media (Huffington Post), Entertainment (Zynga), Commerce (Gilt Groupe) and advertising (Buddy Media). This Fireside Chat should attract a different slice of the Toronto startup set, less upstart and more offshoots - i.e. Founders who bring with them experiences from these established sectors in TO.

Nikhil's style is Gangnam.  Our first exchange on Twitter was about his Twitter bio, now updated from: "I'm a VC. And this is crazy. But here's my term sheet. Call me maybe?" which was so last summer to: VC. Gangnam Style

You can read his official bio here. This is going to be fun.


Nikhil is also giving us an hour for one on one meetings with promising prospects that fit his investment profile, in an "Office Hours" format just like First Round Capital's Howard Morgan and 500 Startups' Paul Singh. Once again, Cdling Capital Services Inc. will incorporate traditional referrals from across the local ecosystem and the Cdling platform to deliver a report to Nikhil on October 21 and we will announce his selections on October 22. @cdlingHQ or email me at michael at cdling dot com with any questions or for more details.

We are grateful to our friends at Gowlings who are graciously hosting us for both OFFICE HOURS and the chat.


6:30 - Networking and Pizza

7:00 - Fireside Chat
