Practical Financing Advice for Early-Stage Entrepreneurs

Join the Small Business and Entrepreneur Committee for an evening with some of the most active early-stage investors in the region as well as a founder that has recently succeeded in the fundraising process. Learn how to meet and pitch to investors and find out what really matters to investors before they invest. Discussion topics include: current trends in early-stage investing, hot sectors, what investors consider when making an investment, and the best (and worst) things an entrepreneur can do when interacting with investors.
