Just another example of why our dinner tradition needs to continue. Richard (former Sequoia-backed tech entrepreneur-turned co-founder of Rocket Fizz, a soda pop franchise chain) brought 4 eclectic flavors for a tasting alongside dinner. Peaches and Cream was the bomb, though Toxic Slime was the crowd favorite. Can’t wait until they open their shop on University Ave in Palo Alto. Alana (co-founder of Agent of Presence, a wearable technology/fashion company) dazzled us when explaining how the dress she designed lights up to the beat of your own heart. As seems to be happening these days at FundersClub dinners, a mutual connection was made…Rich offered to put Alana in touch with his friend who ran and sold a large fashion brand to help as Agent of Presence gears up for its first mainstream product release.
Rich is one of our early users. Alana and Felicia met at a muni stop in San Francisco a while back and have been good friends ever since (true story!).
