Upcoming VC Events in the Southeast

I was just looking at my calendar and thinking about how busy things are going to be. There are lots of good venture capital oriented events coming up in the next few months.

If you are thinking about raising capital or if you are doing something innovative in the Southeastern United States, consider attending one or more of these. Also, let me know if you will be there -- I always like meeting folks that are doing interesting things. And I am always good for a coffee or beer!

I am attending the following big regional/national conferences:

- SEVC: The Southeast Venture Conference. February 24 and 25 in Tysons Corner. I will be up in Tysons for most of the week, so let me know if you can connect.

- SXSW Interactive: The mecca for US emerging technology, gaming and eCommerce companies. March 12 through 16 in Austin, Texas. I will be in Austin starting on the 11th. Let me know if you are in town and we can definitely meet up.

- CED Venture Conference: Bringing together the best and brightest in the RTP region. April 20 through 22nd in Pinehurst, NC.

- MAVA's Capital Connection: A great conference at a new time. May 19 and 20 in Baltimore, MD.

Also, for the Central Virginia folks, we have some upcoming Venture Forum events:

- This Thursday (2/18) we have a Venture Out event at the Bull and Bear Club. This one is co-sponsored by my friends at Transact Capital and Deacon, Norman & Anderson. And, as usual, there will be plenty to drink. I am particularly happy that DNA (Deacon, Norman & Anderson) are co-sponsoring. They are an excellent client and I am excited to see their development.

- On 3/18 we will have a Venture Forum luncheon. The topic is still TBA, but I guarantee it will be a good one. Stay tuned.

- On 4/15 we have another Venture out and then on 5/20 the last Venture Forum luncheon before the summer. Make sure you put them on your calendars.

Every time I go to one of these events I meet some of you who are out there innovating and also reading me on this blog or on Twitter. Keep up the great work!
