Crimson Oak CEO Co-Hosts Venture Capitalists and Entrepreneurs at the Harvard Club

NEW YORK, NY – January 25, 2011 - Blustering winds and 19 inch snow fall outside were no match for the flurry of ideas, capital connections and team offers being exchanged within the Grand Hall of the Harvard Club.   In true “no non-sense” New Yorker fashion, despite inclement weather, almost 200 VCs, angel investors and exceptional entrepreneurs gathered for an exclusive networking event at the Harvard Club.  The New York City venture scene is abuzz with capital, aspiring entrepreneurs and supportive City government initiatives.  Enviable white-hot ventures such as Gilt Groupe and Foursquare all call the Big Apple home.



This members-only event was organized in concert with the Harvard Business Club of New York.  On a night where President Obama’s “State of Union Address” emphasized education and innovation, it was fitting that entrepreneurs and venture capitalists were simultaneously uniting to become catalysts for the national change envisioned.  The energetic crowd represented a broad spectrum of industries including health care, financial services, international trade and digital media amongst others.


“I am happy that our CEO was able to co-organize the event through the Harvard Business Club.  The event is in line with Crimson Oak’s distinctive “Are You Ready?” industry seminars and is a terrific pre-cursor to our AYR seminar on Alternative Investments later this year.   - Lior Evan, COO of Parallel Investment Management LLC and Advisory Board member of Crimson Oak.
