The Entrepreneurship Society Founder Dinner (Invite Only) Vancouver
Deloitte, 26 FLOOR
1055 Dunsmuir St #2800, Vancouver, BC V7X 1P4, Canada
The Entrepreneurship Society is hosting a special Founders Only dinner for entrepreneurs and founders in Vancouver.
(If you're a founder and looking for an invite or chance to attend, feel free to request one from firstname.lastname@example.org)
What is the The Entrepreneurship Society?
The Entrepreneurship Society (TES) focuses on quality, curated events for a variety of stakeholders in the tech ecosystem. Our invite-only guest lists are thoughtfully designed to ensure we create a synergistic environment to maximize networking and engaging conversation.
Each and every Founder Dinner attendee is hand picked so that both you and the TES network of founders will benefit from your presence.
There are a few rules at our Founder Dinners: No small talk. Make it clear what your agenda is. Understand others' agenda. Do everything you can to help others in the room accomplish their business goals.
TES partners use our Founder Dinners as both a retention tool/value add with existing clients to develop new relationships with potential clients. Founders appreciate the more relaxed environment as opposed to the typical pitch environment where the clock is ticking.
Check out our blog post (here) from the Founders Dinner in November at Brassaii in downtown Toronto.
