Upcoming MicroCap Event: LD Micro Invitational
We recently caught up with Chris Lahiji, of the LD Micro Invitational, to learn more about his Los Angeles event planed for June 6th -7th.
According to their website “The 7th Annual LD Micro Invitational will highlight some of the best names in the micro-cap space. We will open on the evening of June 5th with speakers and panels (tbd). On the 6th, over 100 names will be presenting throughout the day. On the 7th, we will shake things up, with companies across three unique themes presenting: Reg A+, “The Best of Buy-Side”, and “Show Me the Money” which focuses solely on names with large insider buying over the past year.”
Lahiji, a well known figure in the microcap space (perhaps best known for his lighthearted sense of humor) filled us in on the LD Micro Invitational.
When and where is the LD Micro Invitational held? How did you decide on that location?
Chris Lahiji: “Luxe Sunset Bel Air because the General Manager was a Homey of mine.”
How would you best describe the event? Is it an investor conference with company presentations, dinner meeting, networking, speakers, 1-on-1s, etc.?
Lahiji: “Everything mentioned and beyond.”
Any interesting sponsors?

How much does it cost to attend?
Lahiji: “It’s expensive, but you get what you pay for.”
Anything else potential attendees should know?
Lahiji: “I still have a missing shoe from the last event we did. I mean, I am hoping that someone ultimately wants their shoe back. I love Tod’s, but I am a size 12 (this is an 10) and it is navy blue (prefer black). Please, for the love of God, just e-mail David and get your damn shoe back. It is just weird looking at. One guy was screwing with us and said it was his. We need confirmation of the other shoe’s existence. Dear God, please help me.”
