Join Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of Greater NY and WeWork Labs for a Startup Showcase that features an overview of the venture capital market and pitches from the best and brightest of WeWork Labs – New York City’s largest incubator with over 300 companies in residence.
At a time when technology, startups and the venture capital market have reshaped industries and rocked markets, we ask about what’s next in the investing landscape? How has early stage investing changed and stayed the same and what should investors keep an eye out for going forward. Join us for a VIP guest lecture and then pitches from WeWork Labs companies. This will be a great evening with opportunities to both learn and connect.

Founder, Brooklyn Bridge Ventures
Charlie O’Donnell has been an active member of the NYC startup community for over 15 years, with a reputation of being the most accessible early stage investor in New York. After being hired as the first analyst at Union Square Ventures and helping to open First Round Capital’s first NYC office, he founded Brooklyn Bridge Ventures in 2012.
Brooklyn Bridge Ventures has made over 60 investments since it was founded, making it one of the most active funds investing in pre-seed and seed rounds in the city. It often leads or co-leads, investing in a wide variety of startups founded by a diverse pool of founders including The Wing, Petal, Clubhouse, Hungryroot, Ample Hills Creamery, Canary, goTenna and Imagen, among others. The fund was the first to be launched in Brooklyn–where he was born and raised.
He competes in triathlons, bikes to work, and founded the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse–a free kayaking program on the East River.
