Ian Lucey, CEO and founder of Irish-based venture capital firm Lucey Fund, is coming to Philly on Oct. 28 and he’s looking for companies who want to get their first few dollars.

The firm has reportedly injected angel capital in some 80 startups around the world, investing between $100,000 – $500,000, and it’s gunning for more deals.

Callowhill-based coworking and events space Venturef0rth will host the free get-together, in which Lucey will share his advice on growing a tech business and securing investments. He’ll listen to your pitch, too.

“We’re interested in getting very involved in the company, helping them to build that product to market,” said Lucey of the company’s investment philosophy in this interview.

The investor will be making a Philly stop in a tour that will take him through D.C., Toronto, Berlin and Chicago.

It’s not the first time that out-of-market investors have come by to source deals. The director of Techstars NYC accelerator program hosted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) at WeWork last month. And, in a less public forum, an investor with a West Coast firm that has backed a Philly company reached out to us earlier this year on his search for more Philly deals. (At the time, he asked not to be named. He was an actual real person though — we know because we met with him — unlike that other time a “West Coast investor” tried to get our attention.)
