Regional Start-up Events Are Back

I caught up with an investor recently, and the topic of schedules came up. We were discussing events we’ve attended and plan to attend. We agree that events are a good way for investors to meet new founders and other investors and learn about new trends. Both of us are looking forward to larger, more regional events, most of which require travel.

I think 2022 will be a great year for in-person start-up events, especially regional ones. There’s pent-up demand for in-person interaction in the start-up community, and I think it will be unleashed this year.

I’m a fan of the hybrid model for events because it allows people to attend who otherwise couldn’t, but I’m looking forward to attending—in person—some regional events this year!
