    Event Description:

    We are hosting a talk on venture capital (VC) funding and an access to funding networking event. Our speaker, Roger Chen will cover demographic trends, VC trends, a summary of startup ecosystem, and how Asian Americans can be bigger participants in the Austin startup scene.

    Roger is a Principal with Silverton Partners, an early stage venture capital firm based in Austin and the most active VC fund in Texas. As a technology investor, prior to joining Silverton, Roger was a Principal with Genacast Ventures in New York, a leading seed-stage VC firm. He previously spent time with Comcast Ventures and Fontinalis Partners, and has been a consultant to several West Coast VCs. Prior to getting into venture capital, Roger spent time at various tech firms including a role as product manager for Google Maps.

    There will also be a showcase of our business funding members, so you will hear about VC funding but will also have the opportunity to network with non-profit lenders, commercial banks and learn about the City of Austin's small business loan programs .

    Refreshments and appetizers will be served. For mixer sponsorship opportunities, please contact Marina Bhargava This event is presented in partnership with the City of Austin. Thank you to our IBM for hosting this event.
