Cigars & Startups Fireside Chat w/ Peter Hamilton CEO of Tune

June 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


This event is the best event in Seattle for entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, cigar curators, and supporters to connect socially around cigars & libations.

As always, FK Kirsten will be hooking us up with Cigars and will be buying a spread of food.

This month we will have a fireside chat with Peter Hamilton CEO of Tune (acquired by Branch 2018 The fireside chat will address financing and the acquisition process and also what happens after the sale.

Here’s Peter’s bio (from linkedin)
A digital marketer by background, Peter is CEO of TUNE, the enterprise platform for partner marketing. In 2018, he sold TUNE’s mobile measurement product to Branch, unifying measurement and user experience. Today, he leads TUNE’s efforts to bring better management technology and automation to marketing partnerships, across affiliates, influencers, networks, and business development relationships. He raised $36.4M through two rounds of funding from Accel Partners and Icon Ventures, made three acquisitions in the martech category, and has scaled teams to over 350 people across 9 offices worldwide.

Thank you to our generous sponsors Karr Tuttle Campbell, Algorithm Tax Group, Lowe Graham Jones.

Interesting Fact: Not everyone at Cigars & Startups smokes cigars, but there definitely are people smoking cigars so if you are offended by the smell of high end cigars, please do not attend. Also due to WA state law, employees can not be forced to attend.


As always, your event fee does not buy cigars as that would be against the law, but I will have ample cigars from my “personal collection thanks to FK Kirsten” that I will be sharing with everyone who attends. So please register before the event, for the inconvenience of having to charge you on the spot, I’m going to charge you $40 if you don’t pre-register.
