Fire and Fuel: Founders and Funders
In Conversation with Floodgate Venture Capitalist Ann Miura-Ko and TaskRabbit Founder Leah Busque

How do a founder and a funder take an idea and build a pioneering company? Before there was Uber or Airbnb, TaskRabbit helped birth the sharing economy. Leah Busque’s entrepreneurial fire has taken her from IBM software engineer to founder of TaskRabbit to venture capitalist. Ann Miura-Ko is a star early stage funder, advisor, and mentor who has fueled the growth of disruptive firms. Their partnership propelled TaskRabbit from early concept and pivoting to scaling in 40 markets before it was acquired by IKEA in 2017.

Join us on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, as venture capitalist Ann Miura-Ko and Leah Busque, founder of TaskRabbit and now general parter at Fuel Capital, speak with the Exponential Center’s Marguerite Gong Hancock about pursuing audacious goals, igniting high impact teams, scaling companies, facing dark moments, creating productive partnerships, and hacking value.

This event will be streamed live on CHM's Facebook page.
