Episode Summary

In mid-January, AVG held the second edition of its investor appreciation event—Spirits & Startups—in Manhattan’s Langham Hotel, so Founders & Funders sent producer Ryan Burleson to capture the scene. Listen along as he narrates the sights and sounds, interviews founders and AVG team members, and details how the event benefits all who attend.

Spirits & Startups is a quarterly event that brings together the entrepreneurs behind AVG portfolio companies with team members and investors in one or more of AVG’s 24 venture capital funds. The New York City edition was the second of more to come in locations where AVG has a strong presence—San Francisco, Chicago, and Boston events are scheduled for later in 2019.

Thanks for listening. We’ll be back with host Shelley Hunter’s next founder episode soon.
