DC area venture capitalist Paul Singh and his investor friends started the North American Tech Tour in 2016 with the idea that they needed to spend more time visiting places that other investors weren’t visiting.
As many of you remember, Paul, Dana and their white lab, Jack, airstreamed into Upstate NY, spending time with us in Syracuse, Utica and Saratoga Springs. They had so much fun meeting great people and connecting with lots of promising tech startups, that they’re returning for another adventure – this time in Rochester, NY!
High Tech Rochester will be our host this season. More details on back to back events with Paul and his friends coming soon. Paul’s visit may even dovetail an event featuring the 20 semifinalists for the NEW Luminate Accelerator – Photonics Venture Challenge!
Interested in a one on one pitch session with Paul and other out of state investors? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list.

Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
