About Event

​Join Forum Ventures and Canva Developers for Pitches, Pivots & Pints!

Grab a pint, relax, and join fellow entrepreneurs and VCs as they share their knowledge and best practices about the pre-seed fundraising process.

Topics may include:

  • ​What got a founder from the “no” to “yes” with investors?
  • ​What was the pivot to the business or pitch that turned things around?
  • ​How to make sure VCs are the right fit for you?


  • Neal Sarraf (Forum Ventures)
  • ​Ravi Balasubramanian (Sandbox Banking)
  • ​Karina Akib, (Founder of Geode Health)
  • ​Moderated by: Ronnie Harris II (SVB)

​We’ll be serving up pizza, beer from Absolution Brewing Company and have non-alcoholic wine from Wine Not with representatives from both onsite to share more about the beverages!


Founders and investors focused on early-stage (pre-Series A) B2B SaaS.
