Happy Hour and Pitch Deck

Pitch Deck is a game about convincing your friends to invest in the most ridiculous startups imaginable.

Fred Benenson, the creator of Pitch Deck, who was also the second employee at Kickstarter and their VP of Data will join us in sharing some laughs and some drinks. 

You all play clueless entrepreneurs and venture capitalists in a world where centaurs wear Crocs, Girl Scouts sell Adderall door-to-door and people rent their doomsday bunkers on Airbnb.

Each round, everyone combines a Pitch card from their hand with a Company card on the table to create a new business. Then everyone makes a quick elevator pitch describing why you should invest.

There are two winners: the person who pitched the most valuable company and the person who invested the most in that company.

Fred Benenson, the creator of Pitch Deck, who was also the second employee at Kickstarter and their VP of Data will join us in sharing some laughs and some drinks. 

Fred has also worked at Y Combinator, Creative Commons and taught at ITP, where he graduated in 2008.

Doors open at 5:00PM for happy hour; games begin at 6PM.

Drinks will be provided and additional wine can be enjoyed at Maritime below Node.
