SUMMARY:

The San Francisco Chapter of the Columbia Venture Community cordially invites you to attend the 4th Annual Columbia Alumni Startup Demo Night — featuring five innovative startups competing for a cash prize. If you're interested in seeing first-hand what kinds of awesome companies Columbia entrepreneurs are starting, don't miss this event! This is also a great opportunity to network and connect with fellow alumni from the region.

As always, come ready to drink and eat — we'll be serving gourmet food, wine, and beer over the course of the evening. Vegan options will also be available. Immediately after the event, we'll continue drinking and networking at The Treasury, a beautiful bar and lounge less than one block from the main venue.
