Levitan, co-founder Maveron 222

Come Meet Dan Levitan of Maveron

July 24 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

| Free

Seattle is privileged to have a number of outstanding VCs. In the select group that have put our community on the national/global map for venture capital is Dan Levitan. If you are not familiar with Dan, he’s the guy who co-founded venture capital firm Maveron with Howard Schultz.

Dan has led many Maveron investments, including Seattle-based companies zulily, Trupanion and Cranium. He has directed a number of successful exits, including eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY), Potbelly (NASDAQ:PBPB), Auctionpay (acquired by Global Payments Inc. NASDAQ: GPN), Capella Education Company (NASDAQ: CPLA), Cranium (acquired by Hasbro NASDAQ: HAS), Quellos (acquired by Blackrock NASDAQ: BLK), Good Technology (acquired by Motorola NASDAQ: MOT), and Shutterfly (NASDAQ: SFLY). Forbes recently named him to its Midas List—the magazine’s annual ranking of the top 100 venture capitalists in the world.

If there was ever a time to explore the mind of an explosively successful venture capitalist, this is it.

We don’t limit ourselves to breakfast here – come join us for a chat with Dan in the afternoon, 4:30-6 PM.
