One thing that was immediately obvious is that they want to be very close with the ecosystem in Cyprus and meet the current and most importantly future founders.
That’s great news as we need people who know their shit, and funding at the pre-seed and seed level in our ecosystem.
As a team we have been planning to have an event for the ecosystem at our new offices so the solution was obvious :) – invite Velocity Partners at our office and introduce them at our ecosystem.
The date has been set – it’s Wednesday the 24th of October. On that Wednesday, instead of our normal happy hour we will host a small event. We are thinking of the following:
17:30 – 18:00 – Early Drinks & Intros
18:00 – 19:00 – A Chat with Dimitris (fireside chat style) in which he talks about the plans of Velocity Partners and you can ask any questions you`d like
19:00 – 21:00 – Drinks & Networking
Before turning this into an “event”, we’d like to get a quick feel of the interest around it, to see how we can best structure it.
So if you would like to join please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to have an approximate measure of attendance and also share your ideas on how we can make this more valuable for you, Velocity and the community as a whole.
Beyond the event, the Velocity Partners team will be in Cyprus from Wednesday till Sunday and wants to meet startup teams, current or future founders and stakeholders in the startup ecosystem.
So Wednesday the 24th is a great opportunity to briefly meet with Velocity Partners and if you have more to discuss, you can meet on the days that will follow (Thursday-Sunday).
