Update on FRC Office Hours in Vancouver

I wrote below about the First Round Capital’s Office Hours event that is being held later today (Thursday, Jan 15) at the Agro Cafe. It was initially reported that they were encouraging “Come one, come all” to attend and BS/pitch your concept/solicit advice.

They said that there was no need to RSVP. I was a little suspicious at this, not at the cordial invite, but at whether the little cafe could accommodate the hordes that might descend. After all, if 6s Marketing filled the Yaletown Brew Pub with 250 people at the recently reborn Ideas on Tap, then surely this small and “deliciously” scrumptious cafe [pun fully intended] would be bursting at the seams. It also looks like the guys at Bootup Labs were beating the drums to get people out.

I did receive this email from Kent Goldman of FRC this evening:


I wanted to give you all a heads-up that the 4:00-5:00pm hour was very popular for Office Hours sign-ups. If you come during that time slot there will likely be a bit of a wait (and while you do wait, we’re buying the coffee and treats). Nevertheless, there should be more than enough time to meet with folks over the two hours that Chris, Boris and I will be at the Agro Cafe. We’ll have a sign-up sheet with more specific times at the event tomorrow.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you then!


OK everyone… bring a jacket and be prepared to huddle/cuddle outside while waiting for your audience.
