New Dinner Series for Entrepreneurs: The Secrets of Scaling

We're organizing a new series of three dinners that will be held in Boston this spring.

The theme is "The Secrets of Scaling." And we have three goals:

1. To bring together founders of promising early-stage ventures for drinks, dinner, and networking. Each dinner will be limited to 20 participants.

2. To bring in a founder/CEO, who'll do a short whiteboard talk about some of the scaling-related issues they've dealt with at their company. No slides, and plenty of time for conversation.

3. To help create more successful, transformative, BIG companies in Boston.

The dinners will take place in downtown Boston on March 12, April 11, and May 2nd. Our speakers will be Scott Savitz, founder and former CEO of ShoeBuy.com, currently managing partner at Data Point Capital;  HubSpot CEO and co-founder Brian Halligan; and LogMeIn founder and CEO Michael Simon. Among them, they've hired hundreds of employees, raised tens of millions in venture capital and generated hundreds of millions in revenue, sold companies, and taken companies public.

If you're interested in participating, please send your name; a sentence or two describing your current venture; and a link to your website to sgilbert -at- silverweave.com. Participation is limited to founders of early-stage companies. (And apologies in advance...space is limited to 60 people in total, and we expect strong interest in this series.)

The underwriters of this dinner series are Bingham McCutchen LLP and KPMG.
