Live Slow Discussion: Dave Morin on Everything but Politics & Pandemic
Slow Ventures Snail Mail
Tuesday, October 13th, 2020
We miss having live gatherings with the Slow community, so have been looking for ways to get groups together in fun and interesting ways… As one of those efforts, we are starting a mini-series of small zoom discussions. First discussion is this Wednesday:
Dave Morin and Sam Lessin Everything But Politics & Pandemic (EBPP) in 2020 Wednesday, October 14th at 12:15 PST/ 3:15 EST Register here
Dave and Sam will host a discussion of the biggest and most important changes we are seeing in 2020 outside of politics and covid. Join a wide-ranging discussion of the themes that matter most, leaving the politics and pandemic aside for an hour. Join the session for $10, all proceeds benefit the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (message if this is a hardship :)!
On the Slow Speaker Series
Slow is hosting a series of interesting conversations with founders in our network and friends in the community. These are meant to be live discussions with participants on zoom, casual, informative, and fun. To keep things small-ish, each event we ask for a $10 contribution that goes to the charity of the speaker's choice.
When? Wednesday, October 21st @ 12:00p PST/ 3:00p EST
What? Transportation has clearly become one of the largest opportunities for innovation in the 21st century. Sam will dive in with Eran, the current CEO of smart dash-cam leader Nexar, about some of the biggest problems in the space currently and what the future will look like.
When? Friday, October 23th @ 12:30p PST / 3:30p EST
What? Sam will riff with a good friend Brad Hargreaves about his experiences finding, building and growing businesses. Brad is a serial entrepreneur with deep experience launching long-term businesses like Common and General Assembly.
What? 2020 has been one of the most volatile years in recent history and especially challenging for founders to navigate. Sam will be chatting with Alexa Von Tobel, who will share her learnings from launching LearnVest during the '08 recession (through to an acquisition by Northwestern Mutual).
