Office Hours SXSW

Now that the First Round Capital team has hosted Office Hours in two countries, we thought we might be ready for Texas. In October, we met with more than 50 entrepreneurs in Palo Alto. In January, we heard great ideas from more than 40 entrepreneurs in Vancouver. They say everything is bigger in Texas. Now it’s time to prove it.

On Monday March 16th, Rob Hayes, Christine Herron and I will be hosting Office Hours SXSW . Just like the original Palo Alto edition, we’d love to meet with entrepreneurs, people thinking about becoming entrepreneurs or folks who would like join a start-up. We’ll be available for a bunch of informal ~10 minute chats. No agenda. We’ll provide the napkins to write on and maybe some margaritas while you wait. Maybe. Details below.

Date: Monday, March 16th

Time: 11:00am – 1:00pm

Location: Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant, 301 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX

And, yes, I’ll be sure to have my ropers on.
