I am the Seattle area director for Startup Grind. It is a community of founders, entrepreneurs, and wantrapreneurs looking to be inspired, educated, and networked with the smartest startup minds. We currently have 18 chapters around the world and we are launching our first event in the Seattle area.
Would you be excited about having the opportunity to work worth some of the smartest people in technology? Wouldn’t it be great to get access to API’s that no one else can get access to from Microsoft and their partners?
On August 29th, we are excited about having Rahul Sood, the GM of the brand new Bing Fund, an angel fund with an incubator program that is backed by Microsoft’s Online Services Division. He will be speaking about and answering questions on the goals of the Bing Fund. The Bing Fund makes angel investments and works closely with startups to take their businesses to critical mass.
During our fireside evening event you will be learning what the Bing Fund is looking for from entrepreneurs to get inducted into their portfolio. Learn what Rahul looks for in founders and in a business plan in order to be part of their family of start ups.
Rahul Sood is a true entrepreneur who loves meeting founders and learning about the next big idea. He knows what it takes to be a success having started two companies in the last 16 years. He sold Voodoo PC to Hewlett Packard in 2006 and is a co-founder of BrightSquid Medical, a unique collaboration platform for medical professionals, which was subsequently acquired by NetworksMD.
The agenda will be from 6pm to 7pm there will be networking and snacks, followed by a fireside chat with featured guest, Rahul Sood from 7 to 8pm. The event will conclude with open question-and-answer session and more networking from 8 to 8:30pm. This event is limited to 50 people, so don’t dilly dally around waiting as there will be no entry without a ticket.
