Entrepreneurs & Investors (E&I)

Entrepreneurs & Investors (E&I) is an invitation-only social forum for leaders of the Boston startup ecosystem. The guest list collectively represents $100M+ in venture capital funding and $5B+ in capital under management. The events are hosted quarterly featuring a cocktail reception, formal dinner, and poker game. E&I is generously supported by Cushman & Wakefield and WilmerHale.

The founding inspiration for E&I resulted from my experience as an entrepreneur, which is the most solitary role in the startup community. Employees, investors, customers, and vendors all look to the CEO for a plethora of answers and unwavering leadership. E&I is one of the few places where founders can freely discuss important issues with their peers in a private and supportive environment.

I launched E&I in the summer of 2011 employing poker as the communal enticement. One can learn a lot about a person while playing cards and the game fosters ties of friendship and comradery among the guests. E&I has since become a unique social forum that encourages meaningful conversations while strengthening relationships among the innovative leaders who are building New England’s future.
