Event Details

You're invited to an unforgettable brunch with Eniac Ventures Founding/General Partner Nihal Mehta and Trail Mix Ventures Founding/General Partner Soraya Darabi!  Enjoy an intimate conversation with Nihal and Soraya, curated connections, a business challenge and pitch off...over a seasonal, locally-sourced meal. 


Nihal Mehta is the Founding General Partner at Eniac Ventures, which recently closed its fourth and largest fund of $100M. At Eniac, Nihal is known as the human rolodex thanks to the thousands of connections he has made while founding 5 different high tech startups. Most recently Nihal was the founding CEO of LocalResponse, where he grew revenues 2153% in three years and landed them at #204 in the 2014 INC. 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies. Prior to LocalResponse, Nihal founded ipsh!, one of the first full-service mobile marketing agencies which was acquired by Omnicom in 2005.


Before founding Eniac, Nihal honed his investing acumen by investing in Admob (acquired by Google), Swiftkey (acquired by Microsoft), Tala, Tapad (acquired by Telenor), and Uber to name a few. He is published in over 15 books and white papers on entrepreneurship and mobile marketing.


Soraya Darabi is a General Partner and founder of Trail Mix Ventures, an early-stage investment firm focused on the "future of living well." TMV invests in services and products that elevate our physical, mental and financial well-being. 

Soraya began her career as Manager of Digital Partnerships and Social Media at The New York Times, and went on to co-found Foodspotting (acq. by OpenTable) and Zady. Soraya made Fast Company's Most Creative People, Inc.'s 30 Under 30, and Fortune’s 40 Under 40. She was twice named a Mentor of the Year by TechStars, is a YGL at The World Economic Forum, and serves as a NY State Trustee for The Nature Conservancy.
