Inman News is somehow still letting us co-host Capital Connect with them on Friday morning, January26th. We usually don't get invited to participate in adult conversations, so we are particularly enthused to be so involved with this one, because it seems actually interesting/worth attending.

There will be venture capitalists, start-ups, private equity professionals, publicly traded tech firms, and other game-changers, all in one place for the first time ever. We've even got an agenda to show you, so just put this on your schedule and make a plan to spend you morning at the Marriott Marquis on January 26th.

In fact, the first 100 Dealbreaker readers to click here will get a free ticket using the code dontmissconnect. There's really no reason not to come and risk missing out on all this:
