27 July 2012 - Starfish Ventures recently hosted dinner in San Francisco, inviting senior management from its portfolio companies with a US presence.
The event was the first of its kind for Starfish, aiming to celebrate recent achievements and provide a networking experience. Of Starfish’s 21 portfolio companies, 10 of these have a significant US presence, and guests were encouraged to share networks and experience between their companies.
Welcoming the guests to dinner at Le Colonial, Anthony Glenning noted that Starfish was eager to encourage the sharing of networks and knowledge, to encourage “cross pollination” between the portfolio companies. Feedback from guests has been very positive.
Starfish Ventures hopes to continue this as an annual event, both in the US and in Australia. More photos from the event can be found on the Starfish Ventures Facebook page.
