TechCrunch Include Office Hours are back for September, this time with Greylock Partners. On September 15th from 2-4 pm PT, Greylock Partners’ investors — Sarah Guo, Matt Heiman and Saam Motamedi — will be meeting with underserved and underrepresented founders, providing valuable feedback and guidance.
Launched in 2014, TechCrunch’s Include program applies resources uniquely available to TechCrunch, including our editorial and events platforms, to create access and opportunity for underserved and underrpresented founders.
TechCrunch Include Office Hours are a part of this effort. Each month, TechCrunch partners with a VC in New York or San Francisco to host these meetings. These private 20-minute sessions are valuable opportunities for entrepreneurs to gain key insights and advice from seasoned investors, as those from Greylock Partners. Founders can apply here.
Underserved and underrepresented founders include (but are not limited to): female founders, veterans, LGBTQ, Black, Latino/a, Asian, handicapable and Native American.
