DFJ Mercury Launches Office Hours Effort
Houston-based venture capital firm DFJ Mercury has taken a book from a popular trend sweeping Silicon Valley venture capital firms, and launched an "office hours" event, telling its contacts this week that it is holding its first DFJ Mercury Office Hours next week. The firm said the event is intended to provide a forum for entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to exchange ideas in a casual environment, and will be limited to local Houston entrepreneurs. The firm said the event--to be held next Friday, June 25th--will include VCs Blair Garrou, Dan Watkins, Ned Hill, and Aziz Gilani. The firm has asked entrepreneurs to RSVP. DFJ Mercury is an affiliate of Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
