RRE Office Hours

While I am relatively new to the New York Tech Community, I have been blown away by its quality and vibrance. The Shake Shack event, NYC Demo Day, the NextNY community, the New York Tech Meetup, Hatchery, and many other meetups are evidence that the land of fast walkers and 15-minute lunch breaks is as strong as ever. As many have mentioned before, I believe we are in a tech renaissance here in New York City.

Here at RRE Ventures, we have been and continue to be firmly committed to supporting New York City as an innovation and technology center. Although the economy is still struggling, we believe there is a tremendous momentum in our local tech community. We consider it a responsibility of the investment community to help inspire successful startups through engagement, community building, and strategic support. We have made many investments in New York companies over the past 15 years, and think that the quality of company formation here in New York has never been better.

This is why we are excited to introduce our first RRE Office Hours. We’d love for you to join us at our offices for informal 15 minute chats on whatever topic you think will be helpful to you. Jim Robinson IV, Stuart Ellman, Will Porteous, and Eric Wiesen will be on hand to discuss anything you’d like related to your startup. The only requirements are passion for innovation and thirst for ideas. You bring your ideas, we’ll supply the coffee and conversation.

Here are the details:

Monday, November 9, 2009

10 AM – 12 PM, 15 minute slots

130 E 59th St., 17th floor

New York, NY 10022

[Note: I have removed the sign-up link. Office hours are full. We’ll be emailing times to those who signed up. Thanks!]


We would like to accommodate everyone who could use some help, but there are only so many slots in the day. If there is great demand for this type of activity and entrepreneurs get a lot of value from it, we’ll look to make this a regular event.

    • Hey Ilan, probably in the next week and a half or so. We’ll give you at least a week’s notice.
