Event Driven Growth

A VC: Musings of a VC in NYC

I’ve seen event driven growth spurts over the years. Each situation is different but a framework I like is to take your pre-event baseline, your event driven peak, and assume you will give up half of the delta when things return to normal and that will be your new baseline. That has been true of almost every event driven growth spurt I have seen in my career. I realize that most businesses are suffering greatly in this pandemic. Many have been shut completely.

Many of our portfolio companies have experimented with virtual events quite successfully. An IRL event of 50, when transitioned online, will swell to 250-500 registrants. Of course, virtual events have trade-offs.

What are the best New York City events to attend to meet VC’s and Angel investors?

Gust

Although there are many, many excellent events each week in New York that it would make sense for a startup entrepreneur to attend (see Gary’s Guide, Startup Digest, or This Week in NY Innovation), the truth is that (a) VCs and serious investors don’t go to most of them, and (b) the odds are slim that even if you and the investor were at the same event, you will have the opportunity or time to do more than say hello. This is a somewhat tricky question.
