Both Sides Of the Table: Lessons Learned from An Entrepreneur and Investor

October 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EDT


Does being an entrepreneur make you a more successful angel investor?
Join us for a workshop with Aaron Hirschhorn on his best practices for angel investing as a successful serial entrepreneur himself.
Aaron will talk about what he’s learned through his successful angel investments which include Dollar Shave Club ($1b sale to Unilever), Sooth Massage, and Calm meditation app, as well as his failures and learnings from being in the driver’s seat as a founder.
Most recently Aaron was the Founder and CEO of DogVacay, an international consumer marketplace for pet services. Since it’s founding in 2012 DogVacay raised $47m from investors including Benchmark Capital and Andreessen Horowitz, and generated over $100m in revenue. The company exited to Rover in April 2017.
Today, Aaron is a Partner at Bold Capital, an angel investor, and is working on his next venture.
While focused on investors, we invite entrepreneurs to also attend to hear the investor perspective.
8:00 – 8:30 am Registration & Breakfast

10:00 – 10:30 am Optional: Post event networking
Note: We are excited to host our event at Babson Miami’s new campus in Brickell! Parking is located at the same address as the building, but the entrance can be accessed through South Miami Avenue.
