Fireside chat with angel investor Jason Calacanis
October 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Shubh and Isaac (both SYDE ’17), co-founders of Amelia are hosting a virtual fireside chat with angel investor Jason Calacanis for UWaterloo students and alumni. Jason Calacanis is an angel investor, technology entrepreneur, and the host of the popular podcasts, This Week in Startups and Angel. As a “scout” for top Silicon Valley venture capital firm Sequoia Capital and later as an angel, Jason has invested in 200+ early-stage startups including 6 “unicorns” (Uber and Calm to name a few). And Jason loves UWaterloo, saying he thinks some of the best & hardest working technology founders come out of Waterloo.
This discussion will cover angel investing, building good products and what it takes to build a fundable business.
