From the Road
As we shift to attending and hosting a blend of live and virtual events, this dynamic continues to be a crucial element helping us to deliver on the Azafran Investment Thesis. As passionate entrepreneurs at heart, every week our team covers the road less traveled, sometimes the only VCs in the room, attending pitch events, demo days, and industry conferences for incredible applied deep tech founders and companies. Following is a sample of recent events attended by Team Azafran:
Project Voice X 2021
The power of community, peer groups and the impact of strong content
Hats off to Project Voice who packed an impressive collection of technology founders of voice companies as well as valuable leading voice thought leaders from Microsoft, Lenovo, Ford Motor Company, Deloitte and Amazon Alexa into 3 action-packed days.
Attending this event allowed Azafran Capital Partners to hear first-hand 25 dynamic presentations, 8 voice/AI startup pitches, fun, and helpful networking activities. Thank you to Project Voice CEO Bradley Metrock and Director Robert Merrill Fletcher for recognizing the power of community, peer groups and the impact of strong content. All to drive Voice and AI technology to solve technology problems. Today.
We at Azafran Partners work with partners like Project Voice, Strategics like Microsoft, Lenovo, Ford, Alexa and Deloitte to help technology companies scale. As Mark Cuban famously said and is being proven true every year that passes, ‘there’s no future that doesn’t have ambient computing or voice activation.’
Colorado Venture Summit
Showcasing incredible growth in the Denver/Boulder venture and startup ecosystem
The Denver / Boulder region represents the Western edge of Azafran’s physical footprint, we are excited to be part of this growing ecosystem that is now firmly on the U.S. and global map for VC & startups.
CVS was live again after a year hiatus and took advantage as a nearly 100% 1:1 format. From networking to VC-Founder meetings, all attendees came away with many new connections and our team was excited to find a few new companies for our pipeline. We look forward to growing our presence in the Denver / Boulder community in the years to come!
