Category: Regional Events

Upstate’s most active angel investor shares insights from founding and growing a Silicon Valley startup to IPO, along with his 10 year journey of helping high growth entrepreneurs get connected to resources across the entire Upstate region. In a fireside chat moderated by Upstate Capital’s former Executive Director Sam Ticknor, Martin reflects on findings from his just released book More Good Jobs including examples of how small tribes of local leaders working together catalyzed startup community by using best practices in their approach to engage leaders not yet participating as startup supporters and investors. The discussion will be helpful not only for entrepreneurs & angels, but also institutional investors and entrepreneurs looking for easier paths to connect with curated sources of capital, expertise and deal flow. Martin Babinec is founder and board member of Silicon Valley based TriNet [NYSE: TNET], Founder/Director UpVentures Capital and Founder/Chairman of non-profits Upstate Venture Connect and Entrepreneurs Across Borders.
