I first met Bijan Sabet in 2008 or so at his offices in Boston. Spark Capital was a new-ish firm and had way louder partners. Sabet was quiet and unassuming– and still is. But he’s unquestionably the young firm’s star partner.

Having lead deals in Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare, OMGPop, and Jelly, he’s not only a star within Spark but one of the most influential investors on the East Coast. We’ve already had the other ones: Fred Wilson, Josh Kopelman and a recently transplanted Chris Dixon, so this particular PandoMonthly has been a long time coming and one I’ve personally been looking forward to for a while.

Get your tickets to attend right here, right now.

It’s hard to believe we haven’t been in New York since April’s amazing sit down with Steve Case, and we won’t be back until September. So next week is your only summer shot to see an amazing conversation, reconnect with the Pando team, and of course have your fill of free dimsum, beer, and whiskey tastings.

I’ve missed you guys.
