The Amazon Effect in DC

Speaking Engagement | May.01.2019 | 5:30pm - 7:30pm (Eastern Standard Time)

Orrick Washington D.C.

Join VC/PE and other fellow professionals, academics to hear up to date insights on the fast changing venture community in the nation’s capital. From being a center for government, entrepreneurialism is growing rapidly, as evidenced by Amazon’s decision to open a campus in northern Virginia.

The evening will feature a presentation by Georgetown University MBA Tai Mai, who has conducted a recent in person, interview based survey of the community for Qodeo. Qodeo matches investors with entrepreneurs globally on our platform – a key part of Qodeo’s data is collected in conjunction with 30 leading Business Schools worldwide, including Georgetown.

After the presentation, there will be a round table discussion, including Tai Mai, Qodeo’s CEO Simon Glass, law firm Orrick’s Technology Companies Group Partner Geoff Willard, and Israeli crowdfunder Our Crowd’s Kate Horin. This event is supported by the UK Embassy to the USA/UK Department of International Trade.

Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Qodeo’s new DC market snapshot report, written by Tai and edited by the former Deputy Editor of Business for The (London) Times.
