What is it?

Tech Tour 2016 is a week long event from October 24th to 28th where entrepreneurs and startups can learn from one of the top tech investors in the country. There will be public and private events, tours of local incubators and companies, and available office hours where startup founders can meet with Paul and his team to discuss investment.

Who is Paul Singh?

Singh is an entrepreneur, speaker, investor, and Airstreamer. Previously, Singh was a managing director at 1776 and a general partner in 1776’s Seed Fund. Prior to 1776, Singh was the founder of Disruption Corporation (acquired by 1776) and general partner of Disruption’s post-seed venture capital arm, Crystal Tech Fund.

Before that, Singh was a partner at 500 Startups, an accelerator and venture firm headquartered in Silicon Valley that has invested in more than 1,500 companies across 50-plus countries. Singh has founded a few of his own startups (two successful exits and a number of failures in between) and spent some time at AOL, Carmax, PBworks, and Symantec.

Office Hours

When Paul is not at an event or tour, he will be setting up shop at Atrium and The C3 at Indiana Tech. Each pre-scheduled 30 minute meeting will allow a local startup or entrepreneur to meet with Paul and his team to discuss their startup, get feedback, and possibly make an important connection for later investment.

This isn't Shark Tank, but a friendly discussion about you and your company. Be prepared to answer questions, show facts and data, and discuss your business. But don't miss this important opportunity!
