The world’s most powerful startup investor, Ron Conway, spoke at an event at Hunch last night.Here’s what you missed from the speech and the mingling afterward:

  • Conway mentioned GroupMe several times as an example of the kind of startups he’s looking to invest in.
  • He doesn’t think location services and sale sites like Gilt Groupe or Groupon are over-saturated.
  • He and his team spend one week per quarter in NYC now meeting with companies in their portfolio and meeting with new startups to invest in.
  • Everyone was not-so-subtly pitching their company to him or his team.
  • Conway’s also interested in anything that produces “real time” data or user-generated data.
  • Everyone we spoke with after the speech kept talking about their own stuff.
