The team at Consort Partners is honored to partner with NOAH Advisors on their first US conference taking place Tuesday, June 26th at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco.

Over 500 of the best and brightest entrepreneurs, investors and advisors from Europe are flying in to the city by the bay to present their companies to Silicon Valley digerati spanning start ups to investors, angels to bankers, reporters to lawyers.  I’m honored to have a hand at welcoming attendees at 8am, along with Marco Rodzynek, Managing Director and Founder of NOAH.

XING, Europe’s largest business networking site, has not only emerged as the first Web 2.0 company to IPO in the world, but has also been making money, something you don’t hear about too often in the Internet world. The story featured a large photo of Lars Hinrichs, CEO and founder, below. You can read the story in its entirety here: Europe’s Online Voice.
