This exciting online event consists of a series of ~45-60 minute afternoon zoom sessions focused around key venture and entrepreneurial topics held by accomplished brothers in the respective fields.
This small series of zoom forums in April are for founders, CEO’s, investors and advisors to gather to ask questions and receive brief perspectives around very pointed topics of relevance.
We anticipate about 15-20 people joining for free via zoom each Wednesday in April. The series will lead up to our Venture Summit on May 11 in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is meant to energize the network of brothers who are venture-minded from both the investor and the start-up side.
Brothers who attend 3+ installments of the zoom series receive a 50% discount on the Venture Summit (May 12th, San Francisco) or the Gilrane Economic Symposium (December 8th, Greenwich, CT).
