Nov. 30, 2010 - PRLog -- SAN FRANCISCO—Publisher and Cofounder Steve Hoffman of Founders Space, a global network of founders and advisors, announced today that the December San Francisco Roundtable will  feature information-sharing with a combination of Dutch and Bay Area founders.  “This will be a great opportunity for Dutch and Bay Area founders to share stories and learn about how to raise venture capital in 2011,” said Hoffman.  According to Hoffman, a Founders Space Roundtable is a monthly meeting “where founders get together and solve their most pressing problems.”

The San Francisco Roundtable will occur on December 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the office of the Consulate General of the Netherlands at 120 Kearny Street in San Francisco.  The topic, “How to Raise Venture Capital in 2011,” will be presented by Curtis Mo of DLA Piper and David Thacker of Greylock Partners.

Roundtables are open to founders and C-level executives at growth-oriented startups and emerging companies.  Interested founders can sign up for the Roundtable, which costs under $20, at

“Founders Space Roundtables are building momentum in several markets beyond San Francisco,” said Hoffman, “including Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and San Diego.”  He added that Roundtables are also planned for January and February in New York, Houston and additional markets.  “A Founders Space Roundtable is not a panel of speakers, seminar or business mixer," said Hoffman.  "It’s a working session focused on dealing with tough issues startups face.  Each Roundtable tackles a specific subject, such as negotiating a term sheet, creating a marketing plan, filing patents, or raising venture capital.”

Hoffman said that sessions begin with an industry expert, who provides an overview of the subject, as well as detailed business advice.  “The founders then break up into smaller groups to help one another address the issue as it relates to their own companies.”  For additional information on Founders Space and the Roundtables, visit
